Google Docs Dumps the Dictionary for the Whole Web [ReadWriteWeb]

Sign of the semantic times
"Google Docs now has improved spell-checking that draws from the whole Web instead of a fixed dictionary. The spell-checking in Docs will now constantly evolve as Google's search robots crawl the Web and receive new queries from users.
Just as the Google search box can fix spelling mistakes based on Web results, Google Docs spell-check can now make contextual suggestions. If you accidentally type "let's meat tomorrow morning," Google Docs can now suggest "meet," even though "meat" is also a word in the dictionary. It will also now recognize newly invented words and pop culture references."
