  • David,

    I nominate GOOGLE and GOOGLEBOT to win the Webby Awards!

    Here is an interesting article about Google, if you haven't already seen it.

    I guess Google is finally cracking down on domains with Google in them.

    What about the other sites with Google in them?

    Also, since you're into words, I thought you'd
    enjoy this. It's just for fun:

  • I thought you'd enjoy this. Please pass this on and tell 6 friends about Google:

    GOOGLE is an acronym for:

    God's Only Online Gateway Linking Electronically

    General Organism Optimized For Gratification And Logical Exploration

    Sincerely,

Mountains fall and seas divide, Before the one who in his stride Takes a hard road by day Sweeping obstacles away Believe in yourself and in your plan Say not - I cannot - I can The prizes of life we fail to win Because we doubt the power within..."
