FAT Ring is kind of like far-ting for r-tards. It is also offers an alternative web indexing system to compete with those offered by key players like Google and Yahoo. The key to the "FAT Ring Indexing System" is the patented "Ring of Trust" Approach, in which FAT Lab only indexes relevant websites that they trust and respect. The FAT Ring, therefore, most effectively provides a researcher with all of the most pertinent websites related to FAT Lab.

The Ring system may seem like an evolutionary dead end, but the beauty of this system lies in the creation of more rings. If every field, organization, or special interest self-indexed their most relevant websites into a Ring, and, in turn, those Rings were indexed into curated meta-Rings, and, in turn, those meta-Rings were indexed into even more meta-Rings, and, in turn, well... you get the picture. There would develop both larger organisms and entire ecosystem of Ring indexing.

What about searching you ask? Forget searching! Searching has failed us. Try searching on Google for reliable information on javascript programming. The first ten results will be for forums with information that was last accurate in 2004. That is not very effective. And how many times have you typed a benign term into Google image search and gotten back pornographic images instead of what you were needing to research? I would guess probably more than you can count...

The problem with top-down search is that with the return of every search query, you are forced to self-organize the data, and mentally create Rings consisting of the information most pertinent to you. This is a highly inefficient system. Sure, a system like Google is terrific at providing things like the weather report or the exact density of gold, but generally speaking, most people who search are not looking for anything quite so specific. People tend to be more interested in searching for more ambiguous or conceptual information and systems like Google do a poor job of effectively curating it.

The point here is that Ring-indexing holds more promise for exploring pertinent and relevant information than brute-force top-down indexing, as you will only ever find information deemed relevant and worthwhile in the subject area that you are interesed in. As well, in a system based upon Rings, rather than top-down searching, data will be filtered using cross-indexing. No longer will you need to call out blindly to the aether for information. In the Ring model, you will be able to narrow it down to a group of relevant data-sets (i.e. rings), which can be cross-indexed to your heart's content (and even recursively).

In short, the Ring system will allow for a rhizomatic structure as opposed to the more common tree-like model of standard search engines. And as we all know, French Fries are more hella good than boiled tree bark.
