The Dutch chapter of ISOC asked the great Anne Stalinksi to make a cartoon of Searsia. Translated to English, the cartoon says: “Searsia allows users to search sources that Google cannot use”. The user enters the query “How to bake a quiche?”, and Searsia not only searches the “Internet”, but also the infamous “grandma’s cookbook” and “sundry”.
