Google Rocks (and so does Cleveland) !

As I sit here half frozen, I thought I'd share with you just a few reasons why I am a huge advocate of Google. So here they are, in no particular order:

1. Simplicity. Google clearly understands that less is sometimes more. I don't want to be distracted with flashing pictures, intrusive noise, and those oh-so-annoying pop-over ads. Give me white space and text ads any day of the week.

2. Relevant results. When I type in a search query, I find what I'm looking for fast. What I don't find is a porn site cloaking itself as something legit in search results. yay! They make my job easier.

3. Accountability. Google's company motto is "Don't be evil", and they take it very seriously. It's nice to see a company striving for something more than just the almightly dollar.

4. Humor. The Google people know how to have fun and give us (and themselves) a good laugh. For example, just take a look at Google Gulp, Google Mentalplex, PigeonRank, Google Lunar Jobs, Google Moon (zoom in all the way & check out the FAQs). And check out these special "languages": Klingon, Pig Latin, Leet, Bork Bork Bork, and Elmer Fudd. If you know of more Google Pranks, let me know.

5. Gmail. Google brought us the best e-mail service EVER. Following the philosophy of their website, Gmail is clean and easy on the eyes. You never, ever get those evil pop-overs sneaking up on you when you're trying to read your email (*cough* like yahoo *cough*). Plus, with all the storage space they give you, you never have to delete an email. You can rest assured that with Google search power you can find whatever email you need in a flash.

6. Google SMS. I lost my directions on the way to a meeting at another library just a few weeks ago. But I didn't have to worry. With my cell phone handy I just sent Google a text message asking for directions, and a few seconds later I was on my way in the right direction. Try it out
on the Google SMS page.

7. Google's founders are liberal, as are many of their employees. They believe in things like open source software and fair treatment of their employees. They have awesome benefits packages, free lunch and snacks, play time, and more. And overall, they believe in making the world a better place.

8. Constant innovation. They are always thinking of new ways to do things, and come up with some pretty cool stuff. Check out Google Labs to play with all the newest Google toys.

9. They are always striving for improvement, and understand that "great just isn't good enough".
