Google Search Stories: What Did You Search for Today?

 |  |  |  |  |  November 20, 2009


Robert Wong and his co-workers at Google’s Creative Lab created a bunch of short and funny clips showing how their search engine helps people not just to find websites but to improve their lives: “In other words, the best search results don’t show up on a webpage — they show up in somebody’s life.”

Did that sound like a bunch of crap to you? It did to me, until I watched the videos.

Here’s another one, with a more ordinary story. Watch it and I swear you’ll think of your own search story:

Dawwwwwwww. There are a few more clips at the official Search Stories channel on YouTube. The videos reminded me of just how much we’ve come to depend on Google and the Internet for all sorts of things, from the simple to the complicated ones, that when we want answers there’s a good chance that we’ll immediately tell ourselves, “I’ll just google it.” It’s a funny (and scary) thought.
