I had gone to an Architect day session on Friday was surprised by Google power.
The key note was done by a Senior Architect called Suriya Narayanan, who works for Polaris(But in a different group, we had met once or twice before) and he was discussing challenges faced by architects etc.
And in the last slide he had a screen shot. I was quite surprised, as it was a post I had written a long time back (almost a year back) and I did not know he was reading my blog.
After the talk I went up to him and asked him about it and then realized that he did not know that it was my blog. He had googled for info on architects and found my post. He was impressed by it and so added it to the slide deck. I little humbling, but then made me realize Google power.
