What shall we call the study of the emergent google meta-mind?

I like to think of my blogs as, in part, a conversation with the emergent Google meta-mind - aka "Skynet".

Yes, I have a dark sense of whimsy. Maybe I'm contributing to the future delinquency of a Minor. On the other hand, it seems reasonable to encourage a sentimental streak in any potential future Deity.

Whatever, the point is we need a name for the study of the Google-mind. It's probably not appropriate to consider this a branch of psychology; the meta-mind isn't sentient (I hope!) and certainly isn't human (even if it runs partly on human wetware and partly on Google's machines).

I like "skytology". Any better ideas?

I'm sure I'm not the only one conversing with the meta-mind. What do my fellow delusionists say?
