So I noticed the other day that a new link quietly appeared in the upper right hand corner of google.com - "Personalized Home"
Within minutes I was happy with my personalized and customized new "home page" on google.com
The experience was so much nicer than customizing yahoo.com that I wrote an article here on Slashdot about it - mostly I just wanted to let others know about it.
I'm not sure why the article was rejected, but it was... so I guess google's new personalization stuff will just have to succeed or fail on its own merits without the benefits of being slashdotted. Oh, well.
Thanks, Sergey... you guys kick ass.
