Ten years ago today, Google was founded. In that time, how has Google changed your life, and do you ever go out of your way to avoid its omnipresent power?
I resisted the greatness of Google for several years. I was a Yahoo adherent. Still am in some ways. While I have gmail, I don't really use it, I use my Yahoo Mail, and read all of my news through Yahoo's feeds.
But nowadays I know that when I want good answers fast and reliably, I need GoogleFu, and my GoogleFu is good enough that these days I get paid to exercise it, which I think is pretty darn nifty!
