random idea: google link?

i always have to put in links to things that maybe people don't know what i'm talking about. i'm thinking of writing a filter (if drupal still has that ability) to put the top google link for a search phrase.

for instance, if i say [nokia 7650] then the filter will take the stuff in the square brackets, use the google api and grab the top link and convert it into a link like nokia 7650. that means i have to fix xmlrpc or see if php does some limited SOAP(aka. web services) stuff.

this will help alot because most of the time i have to have google open on another window and cut and paste links. so when i talk about geeky stuff that you don't understand, i can just put square brackets around most things and you can just click on the links to find out more.

You can reply to me about this on Twitter:
