"There's one answer to this," he said, "We need to check the Underweb."

The Underweb was Johnny Voodoo's favorite, the invisible dregs of the dreams of Tim Berners-Lee. While Google showed only the shining few - the highly-linked, famous, common gigantic web sites - the Underweb was the opposite. It showed the least-viewed pages, the little backstreams and deer trails of the web. He swore he found forgotten treasures there, but whenever I tried it, all I could find was half-completed personal web pages of fourteen-year-olds, and sometimes when I was lucky an abandoned company ad site. One time I got a cybersquatter's page. Nothing "valuable."

But he swore by it, and, as he'd promised, he managed to find the rubies within six hours.

What's your secret?
