Yes, Google Fan Boy Alert. It's happening now.
Look beyond the stock price. Look beyond search advertising as their printer of money. Google is a part of so many fascinating aspects of where society and technology are intersecting, that my guess is that it will soon be hard to do anything that isn't - in some way, shape or form - connected to Google.
