Actually its a way back News at BBC dated 15 September 2009 - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/8255818.stm I tracked it back from the blog post of Search Engine Land .

I was going through the highlights of Amit Singhal at SXSW conference (senior vice president of Google) http://searchengineland.com/google-search-chief-amit-singhal-at-sxsw-151081 . It was an answer given back for
Search A Partnership With Content Owners: ”Having humanity’s knowledge on the web is not enough. You have to understand it,” he said. Then he told a nice story about African potato farmer helped by people sharing knowledge on web, giving Google the content in order to rank it.


Content is King. But its should be for Humans.

It was amazing to see the type of answers he give..
