Quoted in U.S. News

I got quoted in U.S. News! It's in the story The World According To Google by David Lagesse in the May 10 issue. Here's the key passage:

Google has succeeded because it's quicker than riffling through Yellow Pages for a store's number, cheaper than an investigator for scoping a date, and closer than the library when crashing on a term paper. It even finds a sunny escape for a midwesterner tired of the cold. "I Googled 'home for rent' and 'January and February,' and up popped a description and photos of the place we're now staying," says Larry Bodine, a marketing consultant who temporarily fled his Illinois home for Tucson, Ariz. "I can't imagine living without Google."
I mention this for two reasons:

  • I find that many reporters read and Google blogs. For marketing purposes, they are an excellent way to put news story ideas in front of the media.
  • I've been in Chicago since March, but I can't imaging living without being in Tucson during winter.
