A-Z Challenge ~ Google #atozchallenge
I was born in the 70’s and we didn’t have Google back then. In order to get information back then we had to go to the library, or if you were lucky you had a huge bookcase filled with Encyclopedias. Those big books from A-Z had all sorts of various information about anything and everything. However, now that I think about it, the information was a bit limited.
But nowadays, we have the web and, well, Google.
In 1997, Google.com is registered as a domain on September 15. The name—a play on the word “googol,” a mathematical term for the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros—reflects Larry and Sergey’s mission to organize a seemingly infinite amount of information on the web.
This has changed the way we research, learn, and look up info. When my kids ask me a question that I don’t know the exact history of or that I don’t know at all, our go to answer is … Google it. We often start conversations during dinner that are historical and complex so we can learn, and almost every time we have to look something up on Google. It’s so easy and convenient to be able to pull out your cell phone and look up dates, names, and locations of anything.
As a writer, I get a lot of my information from Google.
What do you Google?
I use Google for most of my research and for fact checking.
Then there is Google+ for socializing…
My grandkids say Google it and it cracks me up everytime:)
What do I Google? Everything I need to look up on the internet. It’s amazing how Google has become the standard search engine for the internet. I remember back when you would choose between Yahoo! or Alta Vista or Webcrawler–each had their pros and cons. Then Google came along and became a verb! 🙂
It sure did! I love to look back how things have changed. My kids don’t know any different, and they think it’s funny or laborious how we had to research things.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
I love Google, I use it all the time, and Google was born on my daughter’s birthday! 🙂
🙂 Oh, how funny!!
And I do too. It’s so easy to gain knowledge on any given thing.
