Much ado about Doodle. Thumbs down to Google

1 Sep

I have been doodling during classes all through my high school and the habit has hardly betrayed me in the University. And yet, ever so cruelly, none of my doodles seem to have made ANY impact at all, especially when you compare them with the ones by Gates at Davos or by Ofir at Israel!

And, MSN Search rocks! I had to dig out this link about Gates and Davos Doodles which I had posted way back in the beginning of the year. Apparently, the BloggerBar (powered by Google) at the top of this blog is supposed to search this Blog. But it yielded NOTHING.

Google search for the keywords “Gates doodles enginerd” returned exactly Two (2) results which were way off target.

And then I tried MSN Search. The same keywords. Four results:
The first: Link to the exact Post.
The second:
Link to the-enginerd’s February archives.

MSN Search just found a new fan!

Blog Day 2005

1 Sep

Blog DaySeptember 1, 2005. Thousands of Bloggers yesterday could be seen linking to their blogkins celebrating the BlogDay 2005. Prasoon, an avid Blogger told our correspondent about how the date 3108 (August 31st) reads like the word “Blog”.

Our correspondent traced the history of Blog Dayback to June 21, 2005 when Nir Ofir posted about it on his blog on the same date. It has been learnt from reliable sources that Mr. Ofir had, in fact, noticed the resemblance between “3108” and “Blog” while doodling at the first Blog conference that was held in Israel.
