It’s just data

Where's your Google?

Yesterday, my daughter came to my all distraught.  “Where’s your laptop?”, she asked me.  I told her where it was, and she quickly fetched it.

It seems that one of her friends had discovered a picture of one of her parents on Google’s image search, and when my daughter had gone there searching for her parents, she was aghast at what she found.  Two images in particular bothered her, this ("you’re gonna get killed!"), and this (to which she was absolutely speechless).

Next she inquired as to whether I could sue to get these pictures taken down, and puzzled by the fact that no only was I unconcerned, I know who did it and have not done a thing about it.

In the midst of all this, I did get a rare glimpse of her perspective of the online world.  It came as she was excitedly fumbling with my laptop — not being familiar with Ubuntu — trying to find a way to launch a browser.  She apparently doesn’t know of it by that term, nor does she tend to refer to it by its product name (“Firefox”) instead she turned to me and asked:

Where’s your Google?


Where’s your Google?

Hey! I just want to make it clear that while I may have come up with the joke in collaboration with Mr Cal Henderson, I didn’t do any of the pictures! I would have made them look MUCH COOLER. I’m a designer, you know. Mr Henderson must take all the credit for that, and for registering the pages in question. BTW - have you seen this: Scooby on Rael. It’s very very strange!

A girl from my class did some sort of tech support today (for a relative, I assume): “Don’t you see that big E? That’s the Internet!”

Where’s your Google?

No matter how many times I reinforce that “Firefox” is a “web browser for viewing the internet”, my mother always shoots me a confused look (or sound) when I am helping her and ask that she ‘open your web browser’.

Terminology is only half the battle - no doubt I could simplify my speech further. I think the experience of seeing Google (I made this her start page after getting tired of her believing that “The Bank” (her former start page) was the software she was running when clicking on the furry fox.

Now, my mother is convinced “Google” is the internet. I suppose she’s partly right there.

Maybe the right thing to do is set all start pages to be the browser’s blank page.

Maybe the right thing to do is set all start pages to be the browser’s blank page.

I’ve never had anything else in any of my browsers after I found out how that was possible. With saved sessions in Opera I have absolutely no need for a start page either. Ever.

So why did Singapore turn to 31-year-old Ismadi Mukhtar as starting right-back for the 2014 Suzuki Cup? The Tampines Rovers' veteran had a good tournament and was a solid performer. But if building a team for the future was the blueprint, then the likes of Fadli Kamis, Madhu Mohana and Faritz Abdul Hameed should have been chosen.
