23andMe BoxI ordered a DNA test from 23andMe, the company Google invested in and is owned by Google co-founder, Sergey Brin’s wife.

The reason I bought the tests were because I saw from Matt Cutts that there was a heavy discount. So I decided, what the heck, why not order them. Then decide if I want to take the test or not. I joked in my tweet that Google would get my DNA:

Yea, I know they are separate companies, but hey – they are close. Like I said above, Google invested in and is owned by Google co-founder, Sergey Brin’s wife.

That being said, who knows – maybe my Google search results will go beyond normal personalization and include my DNA for personalization. Hey – you never know!
