This week I had an idea for a new column, possibly weekly, where I tracked the search industry through images uploaded to Flickr. Although we don’t have an official name for this column, I thought I’d tag this as a BETA release and see how it goes. So sit back and let me run you through this week in search, brought to you via Flickr!
Google appears to have had an open house in their Moscow office. Would you think they would try to act busy, when people are watching? Nope, I caught some Googlers playing the Wii:
I decided to cross the globe in search of some Googlers at work. And guess what? I found them in Tempe, AZ. In this picture, you see an empty beanbag next to a turtle and an awesome Google wall. Obviously in this office, the only Googler lounging around is that turtle.
Trust me, it is not only Google that has open houses. Yahoo seems to have opened their Taiwan office to this nice group of people:
While these guys visited Yahoo’s Taiwan office, it appears the folks in Yahoo’s headquarters are all out to lunch.
I am not sure what this guy is looking at, but I can tell you that this picture was taken at Yahoo’s Singapore office. How cute, those little smilies – how cute!
While Yahoo was running the OSCMS convention, Google was out in Spain (I believe) running a marketing conference. Here is an artistic picture of it all taking place.
Happy birthday Stewart at Yahoo, I hope you got my card in the mail.
If not, I blame the Google scooters and bikes for the delay.
Or maybe it wasn’t Google’s fault for the delay. Maybe they got caught up in that big chess game you are holding this week on campus?
My big question to Yahoo is, why was I not invited to the Yahoo Audacious Party?
You even invited Clay Aiken (doesn’t that look so much like him?)
I can’t possibly end this pictorial without mentioning the little engine that could, Ask.com. Someone had a 1st year anniversary at Ask!
So that is search this week from Flickr. What you think?
