This one is, easily, my favorite find of the last 8 weeks–once I saw how it worked, I snorted. So awesome.
Imagine that some person you know asks you a question that s/he could easily find out themselves by taking 30 or 40 seconds out of their time (rather than yours) and typing a term or two into Google.
Well, if you’re in a playful (or snarky) mood, you should go HERE. It’s called “Let me google that for you” and it looks almost exactly like the google page. There’s one difference, though. The page creates a Screencast of your actions, so that after typing in your term and getting your results, you are show a link which you can then copy and send to your friend.
When your friend clicks on the link, s/he will see the words being typed into the search bar and the results coming up, providing both the answer s/he seeks and a secondary message about how easily s/he might have accessed the answer without involving YOU.
For example, let’s say you asked me what time the Green Bay Packers are going to hand the Giants their ticket to Loserville. I might respond with an email that has this link in it. Followed by a smiley face, of course (assuming I used emoticons–I hate those things).
Have fun with it! Bonus points to the first person who uses it successfully on an administrator!
