Google have created a fine search engine. It works. It’s lovely. Recently, however, Google have started releasing other software — e.g. gmail and Google Earth — and created a new creature. This man is the Google evangelist. In fact, he is your friend, but you avoid him because you don’t want to hear one more time how wonderful gmail is because Google chat is integrated with gmail and you can save your chats to gmail and you can use Google maps to find your city and zoom in and out and scroll left and right and type “restaurants” to show thumbtacks for all the Kentucky Fried Chicken stores in your area.

Yes, the Google evangelist sits in the room with you right now. Alas, he has converted you. He saith, “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel of Google to every user, baptizing them in the waters of gmail, and teaching them to use Google Earth and Maps and Desktop after whatsoever manner I have taught you. And lo Google shall be with you always, even unto the ends of the Google Earth.”
