Many people know I have significant ties with Google; I use AdWords personally and for my clients, I use AdSense on my own Web sites (including this one), and I have many friends who are Googlers. I am hardly an impartial observer.
I also know that this dang Google IPO has been covered ad naseum. So while I feel compelled to say something here, I’ll keep it blissfully short:
Google is an honorable company, with good people (execs and all) that I believe really do want to make the world a better place. I hope they continue to succeed in every way.
