I like Google. If Google was a person I would give him a big hug of thanks and take him out to most expensive restaurant I could afford. Google lets me find exactly what I want to know when I’m writing without my fingers never having to leave my computer keyboard. Today I needed a MacDonald’s on the main road north of Brisbane for my main character, Brooklyn, to have breakfast in. I found one through Google. I then wanted to know how many kilometres that was from Brisbane. I found that too on Google. And I wanted to know what the temperature would be outside on a March day. It was 27degC, also found on Google.
In homage to Google, I believe the word “Googling” – as in “to Google” and the extras “He Googled”, “She Googled”, “They Googled” – and they found what they wanted to know – should be standardised in the English language.
And also want to add well done Google for pulling out of China. Censorship sucks. Thank you for putting morals above all else.
