Google Bookmarks in Personalized Serps

Posted on Mar 2, 2007

I noticed “search history” placed in the serps today. This may have been around for a week or months, however, I haven’t come across any news on the subject. Long story…but, I login to my google account on one machine while performing searches on another so I don’t notice many changes to personalized search. Take a look at this image.

Who’s the nerd now?!

Posted on Jan 25, 2007

In the 80’s there were Star Wars/Star Trek nerds. In the 90’s the computer programmer nerds began to take over. Now what? Where is the next generation? Did Nerds finally build the time machine or warp beam that would free them from this world? According to some research (my highly tuned skill of observation) I’ve come to a more realistic conclusion. THEY ARE AMONG US. WE ARE THEM. Nerdom has evolved and dare I say become cool. Knowing the latest websites or how to program a functional website or app won’t get you stuffed in a locker anymore. In the entertainment...
