Google Suggest Poetry Generator

The Google Suggest Poetry Generator doesn’t always produce poetry, really. (And if your boss asks what you’re doing, there’s still the Web Economy Bullshit Generator.) [Via InsideGoogle.]

Yahoo isn’t the only one with a working video search. At Excite UK, France, Spain, Germany and Italy, you can find a variety of videos as well.

Google Desktop Flaw Fixed

Seraphim Proudleduck Countdown

[Seraphim Proudleduck]

The Seraphim Proudleduck SEO challenge is nearing its January 1st end. Google Blogoscoped is still on what seems to be a safe top spot, but the position in two weeks is what counts. There is still not a single image result in Google.

If you participated by linking to me, please send me an additional email with your PayPal information for me to transfer the money in case I win, and you win. (This is not critical as I will in any case contact the winner, but this should help speed up the process.) Also let me know if there are any problems in announcing your full name here. In your email to, include the words “Seraphim Proudleduck”.

Also note that starting Friday, December 24th, I will not accept new participants. A last word of caution: I only award the money I get, and though I don’t think this is a scam, I cannot make a definite promise until the money is transferred to my own PayPal account.
