Google easter eggs

Usually you think of Easter Eggs only in late March or April. Kids have all kinds of fun hunting around and seeing how many hidden eggs they can find.

In the computer world, “easter egg” means something different. You see, computer programmers like to have their own little geeky inside jokes. Many commercial programs have secret codes built in to display something that you would never see normally. People discover these things by chance, and it is like finding hidden treasure.

My wife loves watching baseball – whenever the Red Sox are playing. Personally, I think it is pretty boring. This week’s video shows why you shouldn’t fall asleep at a baseball game – people might be watching.
