Googling skills

If I'm interviewing someone, I would most definitely test their googling skills. The skill to look for information online, usually by using search engines like Google. Google doesn't only deliver facts from sites like Wikipedia, it also provides definition of words, perform calculations and even tell you how's the weather outside.

As a blogger, I use Google as a dictionary. As a programmer, I use it to locate references, documentations and examples of code. As a gamer, I find strategy guides and game related articles by googling.

If one day, for some reason Google cease to exist, my productivity would plummet. But until then, I'll keep on googling for everything and anything.
