Yabba-Dabba Do! The Flintstones Turns 50 Tomorrow

As I noted at the Search Engine Roundtable, Google has a Flintstones logo for September 30th, tomorrow (but not today in New Zealand). Tomorrow is The Flintstones 50th Birthday.

My 5.9 Seconds On NBC’s Nightly News With Brian Williams

As many of you know, I was hoping to be on NBC Wednesday night at 6:30pm (EST). The show was the Nightly News with Brian Williams. I drove to NBC’s headquarters in NYC and they interviewed me for about 20 minutes on Google. I was actually being interviewed by someone in California, so I had
