Writer's Block: Google Founded

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!
