In homage to Douglas Adams' and John Lloyd's excellent The Deeper Meaning of Liff:

dorking (verb trans.): the practice of expressing the curious and contradictory mixture of irritation, secret pride and frustration felt by a geek when a Google search for some vital piece of information leads to his/her own blog post on a superficially related topic. Tends to provoke thoughts similar to "if I already knew the answer, I wouldn't be Googling for it, now would I?"
