Geek Out: Do You Have a Google Story?

You know, I think of Google as useful and innovative, but they reminded me that it can also be heartwarming. Though I've joked that my discovering was life-changing, it really has changed some lives.

The Official Google Blog shared a story about how a user found his birth father in a simple Google search. Because of a search engine, this man's life is completely different.

Similarly, one of my college friends tried to prove that his last name was so rare, it couldn't be found on Google — but he was wrong. He had accidentally Googled the father who had been trying to find him for years.

These stories aren't unique though — a lot of people have some crazy Google stories. Google wants you to tell them — and so do I! Share your Google story in the comments.
