One week without Google

Cnet – “A Microsoft executive recently compared quitting Google to quitting smoking. As I approach the 10th anniversary of my last cigarette, I decided to put that to the test.
If it weren’t for hyperbole, of course, marketing wouldn’t be nearly as effective. But Google’s presence across the Web does provoke that sort of response from competitors and even friends. From search and Google Maps to Gmail and YouTube, it can be difficult to steer clear of the Google experience during a daily trip around the Internet.”

Hiatus

Just for the next 2 days…Oh, sorry to have frightened you (or made you do the happy dance).

I’m at NYLA today (6 hours of workshops) and then a crzy day on Thursday. Blogging will resume on Friday.

Since I deleted my Twitter and Friendfeed accounts, I’ve had more time to blog. Those two services are incredibly fun and exciting, but they were a huge time suck.  I’m better off without them.
