googling the googly

before google came around, the only other funny six letter word with two g's and two o's was googly. now google has taken that role, and taken it well. and the word is on everyones lip and searching (on google.com) is now referred to as googling. the google blog explains the legal problems that this stirs up and how you can google someone, and how you can't.

I blogged a while back on Blogg's End on the phenomena of looking for people i have known through college or work only to find their obituary. I called it "googling the dead." with the advent of HIV, unfortunately I have had enough experience with such incidents to be able to coin a phrase.

I don't think "the google" as coined by "the bush" will ever catch on however.
