I love Google. Its interface makes me smile. Today, for example, the middle O is a yellow muppet that follows my cursor with her eyes. I enter my request and she nods, returns the information with the speed and efficiency of the the artificially intelligent librarian she is. Tomorrow the O will be an O again, but I will be left wondering, anticipating the next transformation that will add a bit of playful whimsy to a routine task.

Three morals in this story:

1. Google is the kind of librarian I always aspired to be.
2. She is simple and efficient and playful all at once..
3. She keeps the mess off my desk.

Yours with creativity and imagination,
