A Birthday Tribute from an Unexpected Source

Today, October 9, is the 70th anniversary of John Lennon's birth. Google, the preeminent search engine on the Internet he never got to see, posted this tribute.

I often wonder what John would be doing today ... how he would have responded artistically to 9/11 and the war, how he would have cut through all the maudlin bs surrounding Michael Jackson's death like he did when we lost Elvis. Now let me add the web and social media to the list. Wouldn't John's tweets be a blast?

Today, I'm going to imagine how fabulous a world with John still in it would be!


  1. A terrific tribute by you. Google surprised me as well. I'm thrilled his birthday is so embraced...

  2. I love the Google doodle with video.

  3. I was stupidly excited yesterday to see that when I logged onto my computer.
