Life at Google

Life at google would be crazy!  It would take a lot of commitment to be there everyday and on your day off, still have to go into work.  I think working at Google would be amazing, but I don't think I'd be smart enough to get a job there.  Watching that video gave me a whole different outlook on Google.  I thought it was just some search engine, but it's much bigger than that!  They are constantly working on ways to improve life and keep their website the best.  They've definitely got dedication!  The building is like nothing I've ever seen before!  I had imagined a big white place with little pods and computers and a lot of rooms where they were working on different things.  I never had any interest in Google before now and it is surprising to me how secretive they are.  It's a very smart thing, but incredibly intreaging!  I would love to work at Google, but I'm not sure I would want to put all of my time into it.

Can You Imagine?!

Wow!  I can't believe how much I've learned in just six short days of computer class!  It's crazy to think I didn't know there were more search engines than just google, and that some of those off the wall e-mails I get actually aren't true!  I can't imagine why anybody would make up an e-mail just for the heck of it! It's just crazy!  I'm ashamed to say I actually believed all those e-mails I recieved.  E-mail hoaxes.  Who knew?  I even told my mom about some of them and made her believe too!  I mean, some of them are pretty believable.  Believe me, I won't be fooled again!  I am excited about the new search engines I've learned about too!  I never knew there were so many!  I loved the cube website, but it would take me all day to find what I was looking for!  I could probably play on it all day though!  Haha.  I really liked some of the meta search engines.  I will definitely be using some of those in the future!  I'm extremely excited to learn more! :D
