If you are in Google

CLONMEL -- If you're in Google, you're on the map. If you're at the top of the charts, you've an identity. And when you have a strapline all over Google's top 10, you're at the top of your business. Google for "what you waiting for" and you'll see Google confirming that Gwen Stefani is selling well. All of the top 10 for that simple phrase belong to Ms Stefani. Go girl!

Memes and Searchstreams

BATTELLE MEDIA -- There is great value to recording the journey of finding information on the Web. John Battelle puts it in context with Vannevar Bush's famous essay "As We May Think."

JOHO -- One of my Googlenyms is "Irish Typepad." Another is "sunny southeast." The most interesting Googlenym about me is "refused leave to land." Although some readers might like to know I work with the happiest girl in Ireland.
