Halfway through Power Searching with Google, their foray into MOOC, and I aced (100% on the first try) the mid-term assessment.  Perhaps it was a little easy.  I do plan to finish the course and look forward to more expert tips. So far, I've utilized all the things mentioned in the class before, although never consistently, and being reminded of them in this class is probably a good thing.

I'm in the middle of taking the "Power Searching with Google" class (http://www.powersearchingwithgoogle.com/class?class=1&lesson=5) and I found it amusing that the host couldn't admit that hashtags were made popular by Twitter, to be followed shortly later by an emphasize on how to search Google+ space.  This is even more amusing because in an earlier video with the Google Engineer, +Matt Cutts, he claims that Google takes its objectivity seriously.  Word to the wise: it's examples like this that undercut your objectivity.
Otherwise, I'm finding the class interesting, and just the right amount of video to activity balance, with a good balance of covering the basics to moving towards advanced knowledge.  Looking forward to continuing it.

Good point, +Michelle Hoyle. I guess what I was thinking is that symbols are useful terms, and a search engine that could use those to find pages in which they exist would have an advantage.  Easy ones like the yen, British pound, and euro ones, especially, as that would indicate prices and products, and would be more likely to result in pages where advertising would be appropriate.

And thanks to the point to the Crossroads blog--very interesting, and will be helpful as I strive to learn more about the culture I'm moving into!

Had an old hardcopy of this, so I'm putting it here to remember it.

A good review for all of us. Had to chuckle a few times. Gushing is the worst offense I think and also the most common.

Here's what Saudi Arabia looks like (looking eastward from the west of Riyadh about 30 km).  We went out to the "red sands" to have a BBQ.
