Found 6 billion matches for 'ego' ...

I recently discovered that the google spyders had woven me into the web, and that a certain permutation of words listed my page on google.

After the mildly euphoric moments had passed, I decided to play down the event, so I would walk on the ground.

But seriously, I was wondering what this 'mother of all search engines' has turned us personal-web-page-designers into? Egoists? ... Egotists? ... Egomaniacs? ...

This craving to see one's name appear as the result of an almost oracular search algorithm running on some remote server doesnt seem very justified. But anyway, I felt I had to thank Larry Page and Sergey Brin for a means wherein 'commoners' like me could aspire for 'virtual fame'. Pun intended
