What Is Going On Here?
On April 9th, 2003 I happened upon a random post on Doc Searls blog where he explained that he accidently typed just the letter "O" into Google and got the O'Reilly web site. I started wondering what came up for all the letters of the alphabet, and I've been meaning to play around with the Google Web Services API. So, here it is: the first hit you get (in English) when you type each letter into Google.
