<<Matt Cutts says his habit had begun to affect his disposition. The 34-year-old software engineer at Google Inc. was sitting at his computer one evening in December when his wife asked him whether he was doing work because he looked so glum. It was a bad sign, he says. "My mood was being affected by just checking email or seeing what was going on on the Web."

Mr. Cutts decided to go off the Web grid during a week with his wife at a resort in Arizona last month. For the first time he could remember, he says, he vacationed without checking email or going online. He filled his days with horseback riding, mountain biking, a drumming class, Pilates, yoga and acupuncture. He fought temptation: Though he brought his cellphone, he says, he didn't use it to check his email.>>

With articles being written about his every move, how long till Matt catches rouge SEOs digging through his garbage to find Google secrets, or just some Matt Cutts paraphernalia to sell on Ebay. Imagine being able to own some gum that Matt Cutts actually chewed?

His celebrity status is official now. Remember where you were when you first were introduced, it may mean something to your kids someday. :)
