My favorite Google practical joke is still the PigeonRank algorithm from 01 April 2002.

Edit, 21:50 CST: Here's the original post. I like that I got the screenshot when the comment count (now at exactly 5000) was 1984. Fitting.

I love ominous corporate babble. It makes me focus my core capabilities and reach sound conclusions through change-embracing reformulation of my essential plan.


Any good ones from Slashdot? I was so busy I forgot to check, even after my graphics students told me about it.

In other news: The second FIBR paper (third paper this week, sixth one this year) is out! This weekend is for sleeping and unwinding. And much need of it shall I have: I went to Susan Wessler's talk today sans jacket, such was my haste to get to Cardwell. My new colleague L. J. Wang, the KINBRE bioinformatician - who, incidentally, was one of Susan's Ph.D. students at the University of Georgia - is herewith advised to the depth of my commitment to Science. :-P (You'd think I'd have learned my lesson from the fate of my namesake, William Henry Harrison, but noooooo...)

Ok, so... just so I'm clear... We're not meant to understand Brad's post, right?

Or is it just really really late?

<3 <3 <3 <3<3<3<3 That icon!!!
OMG. I love that icon!
Dude! It's Hurley time, ladies!

Ok, so... just so I'm clear... We're not meant to understand Brad's post, right?
Right, though you're supposed to get hints that he's:

  • Gotten rid of the other Denga employees, so that it's just him

  • Planned to run banner ads on LJ

  • Make LJ paid-only


etc.

Or is it just really really late?
Feels that way. But isn't it odd? It's only 22:45 your time (EDT) and 21:45 my time (CDT)... weird.

It's also a play on Brad's old Porsche joke. Brilliant.

Wikipedia has a fairly comprehensive list of online April Fool's Day hoaxes.

W00t! Google buys Mozilla
So I see.

"Google buys Mozilla" and "MS Visual Studio 2005... for Linux" have got to be among the best ones.

William Hsu's List of Ancient Things he Does Remember But Pretends Not To Because It Dates
stage coach tickets, Zsa Zsa Gabors movies, vinyl records, steam-powered automobiles, where to get a good price on a flint musket.


LOL! Thanks, made my evening.
