Let them do the Googling – JuicyBrain – EdenExpress
Every office has at least one person who is always asked: “Where can I find more information about this on the web?” or “Where can I find links to get information for my child’s school project? This kind person then has to go to Google to do the search, and then copy and paste the results into an email for whoever’s son’s assignment.
I am usually that guy and sometimes I wonder why the person who sent me the request could not just have typed the enquiry into Google himself. Especially when I know that they are quite computer literate and they know how to use Google. I love to help people when I know they are not able to use the Internet, or if they don’t have access, but not when I know that they are just lazy.
The guys who created www.letmegooglethatforyou.com also used to be everybody’s googler, and they just one day decided to make a point.
When you go to www.letmegooglethatforyou.com, you enter the enquiry into the search box, just like with Google. Now click on search. You now get a link that you can send to the person who sent you the request. When they click on the link they will be taken to a page that will give step by step instructions on how to do the search themselves and also end with the Google results. I love the fact that after the animation is played, a button appears with the words “Now was that so hard?”
This is a fun little website that you can send to the boss next time he asks you to do a search!
