Google's existence by Deus-Nocte Google's existence by Deus-Nocte
EDIT 09/28/13: Apparently this was featured on FB or something? Which is why I'm getting so many more messages? I REALLY appreciate all the feedback, it's great! I will get to it soon, but please please check out my other artwork? This is SO old, from back when I was in high school, so it is nowhere near my current skill set XD Thanks everyone!

~*~

Thanks for your support, guys, but I didn't reach the finals. :3 I think the others with more technical skill deserved it anyway. I whipped this up pretty quick and I think it got what it deserved.

But srsly, why so many favs? D:


This was my entry for Google's contest, "Doodle 4 Google"
www.google.com/doodle4google/

My art teacher asked me if I was interested, so I gave it a shot. The theme is "What if?", so I chose, "What if Google didn't exist?". I was having trouble painting the hand, so I took a picture of my own and manipulated it in. It looks better this way...

I honestly hope I at least get in the finals. I don't know if I will, but it'd be really nice. ><

I'm kind of hoping for that grand prize scholarship, even, so I have a good start for going to college. As it looks now I don't have much funds.

Just a new laptop would be nice too though. XD

Anyway, I figured I'd submit something. Sorry for the lack of art recently, guys. I just can't bring myself to finish anything.

The page would say: "This webpage is unavailable, because it is a violation to SOPA and has been taken down". I would probably DIE!

For all those who say we'd just use Bing or Yahoo! or whatever, keep in mind, they followed in Google's footsteps. Their search algorithms are just knockoffs of Google's. Without Google, we might never have even had Bing.

I thought about that after I commented. I was just thinking a little while ago when the gov. was trying to get rid of the internet stuff, like youtube, facebook. goodle *now they are almost one thing* So, I'm wondering if they will try doing that again, ya know ^^;

Deus-Nocte Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Ah, yeah, I'm sure they will :/ It's really unfortunate, but the best we can do is keep fighting!

The reason your comment intrigued me was because I read an article not too long ago that predicted the big internet giants (google, facebook) would be gone--or at least a ghost of their former selves--within the next 5 years. Not because they're bad companies, but because of the breakneck pace that technology evolves. Companies just can't keep up with the changing market and stay consistently innovative. The article argued that they would end up like AOL, Yahoo, etc., and I found it really interesting.

I think if anything, though, FB is already on the decline and Google will probably stick around for quite some years. Google is at least trying to stay at the top of the market and develop new products :P

Not to sound like a conspiracy theorist or anything, but I have heard of Big Brother/ or employers looking at peoples facebook and jazz to see about the person. Thy wouldn't want to get rid of those sources. Ha...

I think that things could also change with the economy.

*not that google and other internet sources revolve around the United States, but if our economy drops a hecka lot, there will be less people using internet because of money loss. That, just the US, would lose a lot of users and money income for the internet. I don't know if that would actually have an effect, but its hard to keep free things up when you aren't making any money anywhere else... Do I make any sense?

One day (lol, maybe) everything will be GOOGLE ;)

I think Facebook users are starting to not like it as much anymore, just because of the abuse. I know a few people who are getting rid of their facebooks, to the best they can. So, if people start dropping off Facebook, then it will most likely go down.

Nah, it's a pretty well known fact that both government and employers use FB to dig up dirt. I usually don't have much to worry about because I'm not someone who vents on facebook and I don't like... go to all the wild parties XD; But people who do post that kind of stuff will get passed up for a job because of it. I think it's technically illegal, but it's not something you can really prove unless you have money to throw around, you know? :/

And yeah, the economy will always affect things. They're still based in the US, so it'll have a direct impact.

I'm not at the point where I hate FB yet, but yeah, I've seen it exploited for many things, and it kinda sucks. Should be interesting to see what the next big social media site will be.

If Google itself was erased, the world would be a horrible place...
However, If Google's tampering with Youtube was erased, things wouldn't be so bad.
