An article by AznHun got me thinking about the early days of Google.

To repeat what I commented there;

I started using Google back in 1999 a few weeks after they move dinto proper offices in Paulo Alto for the first time. I feels like yesterday.

We used to put two random actual words into Google, like "Green Parrot" and see what emerged. Later somethng similar was called a Googlewhack (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Googlewhack). We used to fall on the ground laughing at the results. Since then, I have used Google for every search I make (hears Sting singing in the background).

So... like you, Google is my first port of call to find out ANYTHING, and I mean anything. Sometimes though you have to ask the question the right way.

This made me think about what my last 10 google searches were for. Easy enough to see in my History.

10. history of Google

9. what was it called entering two random words into google

8. white phosphor

7. freecol getting started

6. social bookmarking "2012"

5. inkscape

4. hypnosis script anxiety

3. doing keyword research

2. low carb diet

1. terry pratchett

So now I dare you dear reader, give us your last 10 Google searches (or even the last 5).

I am a 40-something computer geek who years ago decided that technology would either rule me or I would rule it. So far so good, but due to an irrational fear of cellphones i now face my greatest adventure. Learning to use my Motorola Razr
