Just read on Techcrunch that Google.org announced today that Google will be spending in 2008 ‘tens of millions’ of dollars on R&D into research related to renewable energy
Google’s official Press Release is here:
I recall a cartoon from the 80s, Inspector Gadget, whose theme song went like this > Go Gadget Go
So, this initiative from Google makes me wanna say… Green Google Green
BTW, also found out that the domains GreenGoogle.com & GoogleGreen.com are registered by someone other than Google!

A couple of days ago, I met a guy who is currently working with a MNC IT Company. He graduated last year & now has around 14 months working experience. He proudly introduced himself as an ‘IT Professional’. After a few minutes of discussion, I found out that the topics which he claimed he had in depth knowledge in his CV, was not really true. I have heard some many people calling themselves as ‘IT Professionals’ over the last few years, & I wonder …
Anyways, I think that the problem really lies in the way this phrase has come about over the years. People do not say that ‘I am in the IT profession’, they prefer to call themselves ‘IT Professionals’. So, does that mean that doctors are not professionals? It’s just that a person with a medical degree is called a Doctor & a person who has graduated from with a college of Architecture is called an Architect.
However, people with computer certification course or degree end up calling themselves as IT Professionals! In fact, in my line of work which is SEO, there’s no formal degree as such & therefore we have many people calling themselves as SEO Gurus, SEO Analysts etc.
So, bottom line is that I should not really be blaming these guys for calling themselves as IT Professionals, however the problem arises only if you are not professional in your work itself & then go on to call yourself as one. I just realized that this has been my first post without a linkout!
