Several jobs ago I was asked to draft a contract amendment. I'd never drafted a contract amendment and there were none in the office to look at so I turned to your friend and mine, Google, and searched for something that I'm sure resembled, "how to draft an amendment for a contract." I remember (why do I remember this so vividly?) that the very first link gave me exactly what I needed. I drafted the amendment, the boss liked it and was happy with the work and life went on.
Nearly a decade later I still sometimes turn to Google to help me with my job. While other people worry about inappropriate links showing up in their search history I worry about the powers that be looking at all of my "how do I do xyz?" queries and wondering why exactly they pay me to show up every day.
When this movie came out and this scene happened I laughed much harder than the other folks in the theater because it was entirely way too familiar for me. And now, each time I find myself doing one of these searches I think of this scene and the line, "Yes, I Googled" pops into my head.
I've long suspected it but this proves it. I'm magic.
I've always had this rule, "if I wouldn't say it to someone's face in their living room, then I don't type it." This has served me well for more than a decade. If more people used that rule maybe tactics like the one described in the linked article wouldn't be needed.
