While speaking today, Daniel Dulitz of Google said the update will happen within 48 hrs and that is as specific as he will get.

Hmmm. Do you notice GoogleGuy never posts while Daniel Dulitz is in the room?

With a name like Daniel Dulitz there is no place to hide on Google.

Unless he hides in phone booths.... Because of cell phones, though, phone booths are getting harder to find.

Maybe he is posting here and reading WW using his cell phone? That Google WAP gateway is all that.

I believe GG's first name is Daniel but his last name is not Dulitz. I think I know what it really is...

:-)

added: Did I say Daniel? I meant another name that starts with D.

I was in the room when the big hint was made, and it was a pretty funny moment - Daniel began this session (which used to be called Search Engine Smackdown) by saying something like "I know that the biggest question on everyone's mind is 'When will the Google Dance begin'" - and he then gave the announcment.

And then a good part of the room wanted to know what a Google Dance is - can you believe it?

Got to wonder how much new traffic that announcement is going to create?

Hmm...I just noticed something:

GoogleGuy: "What can we expect? Hmmm. I predict a logo to celebrate the holiday. :)"

I had thought he was just joking, however it is now obvious he knew about the Michaelangelo logo for today. Thus, unless the update is sometime today GoogleGuy's prediction is wrong. Unless of course they have a special logo for tomorrow too.

GoogleGuy said that some previously banned sites would return within 24hrs. Assuming that they return with the dance, then that would mean we now expect the dance to start within 6 hrs.

I am almost certain no. Somebody once posted a link to GG's picture. That wasn't Daniel Dulitz. Of course, GG could be intentionally trying to mislead people as to what he looks like.

Jaybee,

It's someone using the GoogleViewer... not a deepcrawler.
