I have Google Alerts set up to notify me when my name, combined with my company name (Two Solitudes), appears in something it has indexed.  This week I got a belated alert about an article on a Canadian Chinese-language website.  Being curious as to what it said, I asked Google to translate it to English.  Google's automatic translation of the Chinese equivalent of "Two Solitudes Consulting" came out as "bipolar consultants" (see below).

Sure, I have my ups and downs, but bipolar seems a bit extreme ;-)   In any event, bipolar or not, I got a good laugh out of this :-)
