No one ever dies on Google.

No one ever dies on Google.

At one of my old companies, one phrase we would repeat to clients over and over again was that "Google never forgets." I know, it seems so simple it hardly bears repeating, but at the time most businesses still didn't quite get the importance of managing their online presence beyond maintaining a web site. It's a testament to how quickly things have advanced in just the past five years that the phrase is taken as scripture now.

Today I discovered that not only does Google never forget, it never lets you die either! I have a daily Google Web Alert triggered by my last name and it came back today informing me that my dad was still living in Palatine and was currently 64!

Which isn't quite so.

Oh well, I'd like to thank Google for providing me an alternate reality where that is true...
