Two of the best contents on Google’s personalized homepage are “Word of the Day” and “Quote of the Day”. These seemingly insignificant yet fun and useful features are exactly the things that shows the unique “coolness” of Google. (I consider anything presented by the page as part of Google’s features. Even though the contents themselves are mostly third party modules, but Google is the one making them available in a collaborative and useful manner. You don’t see such fun things on the jaded looking pages of Yahoo or MSN, do you?)
Here is today’s quote:
“My definition of an expert in any field is a person who knows enough about what’s really going on to be scared.” — PJ Plauger
Then I take a look at who this PJ Plauger is…And why am I not surprised? A computer scientist.
