That's right ... in about two weeks, Sunday, October 10th, 2010, will be all ten's. The perfect score on Dancing With the Stars. A unique manifestation of our base-10 counting system. And, with a little mathematical manipulation, we can make it come out to a unique number:
Guess what that is? It's a googol, which is an astoundingly large number. (I know I had to fudge it a little, but 10^[10^(10)] is just absurd.) There aren't even a googol atoms in the universe. But our dear friend Google stems from this number, in an attempt to convey how much information Google hopes to store.
There have been a few attempts to stage a Google Day in the past, but they didn't achieve the viral, internet-phenom level of something like, say, Boobquake. I think this one is different than past Google Days because it has such significance on the calendar.
So on Google Day, pick your favorite Google-hosted website:
And visit it 10 times. Or a googol if you're really patient. Google will love the traffic. And, oh, to celebrate, I might click on a few ads along the way. --->
