Google acquires Neotonic redux
2004-06-08

Last friday, news.com.com discovered that Google bought my company. Well, they mentioned Dave at least. My Google News Alerts caught the story with-in 10 minutes (pretty cool, that). Cooler would have been if they'd actually done some investigation to see when it actually happened, which was April of 2003, more than a year ago. Someone must have clued them in, since the stories gone now, but a friend saved it for me for posterity. The first comment was "Actually, that was April 2003". Guess that was enough for someone to notice and take it down. Its the first time our acquisition was given by name, though there have been other stories which hinted at it before (without naming our company, just "an email company").
