In response to David’s question:“Have you googled yourself…?”
I would have to admit “Yes” – for the simple fact that I want to know if my name actually appears in the listings (and it does – although briefly and sporadically).
Google itself is a rather interesting beast too, isn’t it? The company is estimated to be worth about $23 Billion [not bad for a University research project huh?].
Features like gmail, Google Maps, Google Earth, Google Product Search, Blogger [and the list goes on…], make this software mogul the #1 most-used-provider (search software, in particular) on the Web today.
By the way – has anyone checked out the new Google Mars yet? Fascinating! I wish my piddly little telescope could give me images of Mars like this (I did manage to get a great view of some lunar craters with my lens the other day…). In fact, the photo clip above is from the Google Earth Blog – a rather interesting place to visit for some facts and fun!
ps. Did you know that Google was named after a very large number? The number itself is called a “Googol” – and is represented by 10 to the power of 100 (or a “1” followed by 100 zeroes!)…
