I can’t decide if I really care about this or not but there’s a lot of concern expressed on the web today about Google’s page making no mention of 9/11 and Bing.com posting a beautiful picture of the memorial light plus links to various 9/11 remembrance pages. The beef is that Google usually puts up little images on holidays – St. Patricks Day, Christmas, etc. and even on many days you wouldn’t necessarily associate with a holiday: National PopCorn Day, for instance. Why nothing today?
But again, I’m undecided. For me, September 11th was the most horrible day of my life. For some 22-year-old kid in California, it probably is what Google shows it to be: just another day. We move on and Google has moved on faster than I want to. Is that their fault? Maybe. I’ve moved my default search to Bing, at least for now.
