Well, of course. I suspect that a lot of the big sites use similar technology for content creation. You can tell by the quality of the content.

This always cracks me up, the whole pigeon and internet connection including Carrier Pigeon Internet Protocol which was discussed here". The google page is a nice extension of this. Is it the first time they have put up that page, or is it an annual thing?

Today my website got a hit from someone who searched google with a query that was half in English, half in Japanese. Except links on my customers' front pages, Google is my best advertising (and free!)

Is Google a public company yet? The sanity reflected in this kind of thing makes me want to invest in the company.

btw, last year's Google joke for April 1 is here.

(oh -- ParisP, Google is still privately held, but there's been talk of a public filing, it's probably just a matter of when they think the market turns more favorable...)
