"huge move" in the search engine landscape!
Google, the famous search engine, is
set to buy the Island
of GoGooroa early next month. This island, located
in the Pacific Ocean, has two very special characteristics that attracted the
- The island is shaped like the letter "G", strongly ressembling the
first letter of the Google name and corporate logo (refer to the attached map).
- It is geographical owner of the ".go" domain, which is coveted by
many web site editors around the world.
search engine company, which is currently headquartered in Mountain View (California),
is looking forward to this new site in the Pacific Ocean, on this island which
will be officially renamed Googland in a few weeks.
Its search engine homepage will be also be moved to the "google.go"
domain name in the near future.
island is a very pleasant place to live and the Googlers (people who work at Google)
will appreciate many of the advantages of living in such a paradise. For example,
the Googlers won't pay any tax as the islanders will live off the money earned
by Google, as an autarkic society. Every Googler will be required to have a tropical
fish on his desk and an aquarium in his office.
A minimum of 20% fishing time will be expected of every employee during the working
day (a "Top 100" of the most beautiful fishes caught will be updated
in real time).
in Googland, is expected to be primarily fish-based. Fish is high in phosphorus
and Omega 3 acids which are both important to brain health and for improved thought
process, an advantage Google intends to leverage to beat its competitors in the
ongoing search engine war. The chef, former "Beach Boys" rock band cook,
will also have the task to initiate the Googlers in the regional tropical dances
(he has already added the "The Googland Dance" to his repertoire).
However, not everything is allowed. In fact, every employee out on their daily
fishing expedition caught shooting out "Yahoooooo!" afeter netting a
spectular specimen will be punished by having to, for a whole week, answer the
complaint e-mails from webmasters unhappy with their current rankings on the search
Eric E. Schmidt, Google CEO, will soon be named "Googland Republic President".
Sergey Brin and Larry Page, Google co-founders, will both be prime ministers,
respectively in charge of external commerce and technology. A report that Bill
Gates could be named "Minister of research, development and competition"
was leaked to the press, but he recently denied the project, commenting that "Anyway,
I don't like swimming, I prefer the mountains..."
Sources close to the search engine recently revealed that Google might be searching
for five other islands, in the shapes of the "O", "O", "G",
"L" and "E" letters, in other seas and oceans, with the ultimate
goal to create a worldwide network of datacenters to show its supremacy on all
five continents. Eric W.Foolsday, Google spokesperson, did not comment on or confim
M. David C. BigFish has been named the steward of the
island. David is well known by Abondance web site readers, because he works with
us for a few years. He went on record: "It's a dream job, I was living in
California and I love fishing. The fish are my speciality. I'm not a fool, I'm
going to take this job! I'm feeling lucky..."
