The million dollar question(s)
While on the topic of searches, Google finally went for trade this morning and rose by a considerable chunk to end the day at above $100 (it started at $85). I read that the two founders made around $40 million each by selling small parts of their holdings and mind you this is real money we are talking abt. Wow! Could you imagine 10 years back if someone told you that the web would be so big that you will need a multi-billion dollar search engine to help you around it? Man! Do you think the guys who came up with the idea of a telephone directory made a billion? A little inquisitiveness can take you a long way. So keep asking the questions ...

While on the topic of millionaires, I have to share this trivia about John Carpenter, the first guy to win $1 million on Who Wants to be a Millionaire. For his final question he used the "Phone-A-Friend" option to call up his dad, not for help, but to let him know that he is all set to be a millionaire. That's style!
