A message from my oldest (a freshman(person) in college):
"I googled a question for economics and your blog came up as the first answer"
A few comments:
- I have taught all of my kids "Before you ask a question, try to find the answer on your own. Google is a great place to start." Google is by far the greatest invention since Al Gore invented the internet tubes.
- Because the message was a text I don't know the tone. The message expresses either admiration that Dad came up first in a Google search, or teenage embarrassment that Dad came up first in a Google search. I'm hoping for the former, but would put money on the latter.
- Should google as a verb be capitalized? No, really? Should it?
- I have a paranoid vision of her econ professor telling the class, "Whatever you do, don't use the Environmental Economics blog as a source for real economics. Those Haab and Whitehead guys are idiots.
