It's Wacky Wednesday, and I would only be befitting to highlight one of this weeks wacky and funny articles. For all you SEO/SEM people this means a little history too. Meet Michael Brin, father of Sergery Brin the co-founder of Google and internet billionaire. If it wasn't for Sergey's father emigrating over from Russia oh so many years ago then we might not have had a Google or our favorite the Google Update. While Mr. Brin Sr. says his life hasn't changed much as a result of his son's success, he does offer some insight into how Sergey came to become one of the internet's richest people.

At Stanford, Sergey Brin took classes such as gymnastics and sailing, his father said.

"I asked him if he was taking any advanced courses one semester," Michael Brin said. "He said 'Yes, advanced swimming.'"

Go Sergey! I am taking advanced outdoor recreation this semester myself. :-)
