¡Enhorabuena, Google!

If you're smart enough to have as your home page, you're smart enough to know why this keeps popping up, lately, when you fire up your browser.

In June, Google was named the 2008 winner of the Prince of Asturias Award for "Communication and Humanities." Founded in 1980, the Prince of Asturias Award -- named for the historic heir to the Spanish throne -- is Spain's version of the Nobel Prize.

The prize is justly deserved:
Google, created by Sergey Brin and Larry Page, was cited for "instantly and selectively making the enormous flood of information on the Internet available to hundreds of millions of people, ... [for] a gigantic cultural revolution ... [and] widespread access to knowledge."
We celebrated last year's winner here. Now, we celebrate Google, which receives the award this coming Friday.

Your browser will then return to normal programming.
