Today at SearchSIG, Google was mentioned once every five minutes! Wow…. lets admit it, whether we hate them, or we love them, we do love to talk about them. Them being Google, Yahoo and Microsoft aka GYM. What would happen if the blogsphere decided that we would not talk about the Big Three for a whole week? Instead we shifted our focus on the little guys, interesting technologies, and some other important stuff. Can the blogs exist without talking about the GYM? I don’t know…maybe be a week. I am going to try, and see how long this detox can last. If you are feeling adventurous, then spread the No-GYM meme! I am quite certain this will remind a lot of us about that classic Sienfeld episode about abstinence!

Update: Scoble is on the wagon, PaulK was, but fell of it. 37Signals and Bubble Generation have joined. Jason Clarke is upset, but Jason, we just trying to get diverse conversations going.. Pss.. blame it on Kevin

  1. True, we can’t survive ou tech life without GYM, not M atleast. But I simply hate G now, for various reasons…

  7. If I say I am not going to talk about GYM, am I talking about them? :-)

  8. Maybe we can take 1 start-up everyday and discuss about them (rojo.com for RSS, damaka.com for VoIP, pandora.com for Music, meebo.com for Ajax-IM)

    Thanks for thinking differently and stretching our imaginations – thats what keeps me coming back.
