So, if you haven't noticed, today was April 1st. You know, April Fool's Day. Some of our little pranks were funny, while others were expected. Perhaps we should pull more pranks during the year when you guys least expect it.
In any event, for the 24 hours that marks April 1st on the East Coast (which is still ongoing), we were the Search Engine Squaretable. And we also had some interesting news:
- Microsoft Buys Yahoo So Google Buys Microsoft in Hostile Takeover
- Berkowitz Replaced By Lanzone at Microsoft
- Danny Sullivan Starts Four Door Media
- Matt Cutts Transfers to Performics - Will Assume Lead SEO Role
But we weren't the only ones who pranked the Internets. Cre8asite Forums Staff took a break and their logo turned upside down.
In fact, other members, such as DazzlinDonna, did the same thing:

DigitalPoint Forums members were more amused with the Virgle initiative to help establish a human colony on planet mars. Together with Virgin's chairman, Richard Branson, Google will start this mission in 2014. If you believe you have what it takes, take the questionnaire and then you'll need to upload a YouTube video. Here are some Virgle Videos.
