Writer's Block: Google Founded

Ten years ago today, Google was founded. In that time, how has Google changed your life, and do you ever go out of your way to avoid its omnipresent power?
I remember the day precisely when I first discovered Google. It was in 1999, in Reading, and my colleague Ruth introduced me to this amazing new search engine. I work as a librarian. I find it ironic that I know, almost to the day, when I first came across the engine of my own destruction. Oh, I don't think I'll be made redundant just yet, but I can see a time when I will be, and I think it will be within my working life-time. I wonder if this is how the lamp-lighters felt when they first beheld electricity?
