One of my colleagues just pointed out Google’s home page today. Wow. I couldn’t stop playing with my mouse; the dots were totally entrancing. See the WSJ article for some guesses as to why the dots today… seems they are planning a press event about search tomorrow.

What’s funny is that Google is no longer my home page. I’m beta testing out a new search engine – blekko – and loving it so far. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I think there’s room for blekko in the search world! blekko allows you to narrow your search in all kinds of ways Google does not. I’ll blog more on my personal experience soon, but if you want to read about what they are doing, some of the press is here.

So my first assumption was that Google is worried about them and doing something to preemptively strike. Google may own the verb for search, but we’ll see if they really own the market for the techies once blekko is let loose…
