I wonder when that started? Googling recursively to Wikipedia:
<"Google" was added to the Oxford English Dictionary on June 15,
2006." However, "In their definition, it has a capital G and never a
lower-case g. It always refers to searching for information using the
Google search engine, which was named in 1998 .>
I verbed it generically in 1999 in my story "Infinite Monkey"
(Eidolon 29/30, 2000), but only at the suggestion of a hip, clubbish
editor, Jeremy G. Byrne.
