Whoever said "the best things in life are free" may have been talking about Google. You have to respect a company whose name is now commonly used as a verb. I "google" things every day. I try to pay attention to questions great and trivial, and if I have any interest in knowing more, I google.
Yesterday the Steve Miller song "The Joker" was playing. For the 1000th time I wondered what the "Pompatus of Love" was......so I googled it. Here is one of the answers http://www.straightdope.com/classics/a4_065.html
You want song lyrics? Here's The Turtles "Happy Together" http://www.oldielyrics.com/lyrics/the_turtles/happy_together.html
Want to know how to get gum out of hair? http://www.ehow.com/tips_2591.html
I keep track of questions that arise during the day, so I can google them later.
Why am I blogging about this? Two reasons:
1. It's fun. If you don't already do this, try it and see what I mean.
2. If you ever thought about marketing in your business or profession, (and I think about this a lot in the lawyering biz)......you must think about how people will use Google to find you. I am particularly interested in how people use google to find lawyers.
More on this tomorrow....
