Google Wordmasters 2006 – an experience Google Wordmasters was conducted across 10 cities in 10 cities across the country. I was one of the lucky 3000 who participated in the contest. Hereís the experience from a man who experienced it. I was a participant at Ahmedabad centre. At first the misconception (not only to me but to a lot of participants) was that only 300 out of the whole country would be there. So I expected around 20-30 from Ahmedabad as this was a city with the least IT savvy people compared to the other cities but to my awe,… Read more »

I was @ Kolkata. My GOOGLE goodie bag did not contain the key chain. Lets hear from other participants at the venue (I wasn’t too curious to look inside theirs ) It was great FUN, especially the doubts raised by the participants ! I felt I was back in my school English class, having regressed (or grown) to Harry’s age. About the Essay, I was so focussed on my piece, that I managed to do it in a CRISP, concise 110 words. Then, later I tried to expand it to at least 150 by APPENDING some sentences. Before I coul… Read more »

I’m sure the chap who claimed he won a Maruti Swift was joking. The prizes won’t be anywhere as lavish. Besides, Google wouldn’t have kept it a secret. The company would wish to get as much publicity as possible, right? Unfortunately, all it’s getting on these blogs is negative publicity from disgruntled participants!

I also visited (Participated) in GWM contest at New Delhi. It was quite challenging but There were no Desks, We were expected to write on sheet supported by Goodie Bag/NotePad sitting on an auditorium seat !!! Contest included – 20 random WordsÖ You must Use all of them in your little piece between 150-200 words !!! The piece should be accurate from both gramatical angle as well as logicalÖ Somehow I got my Q Paper almost 5-6 Minutes into the contest, since the volunteer simply was not coming my way, hence In about 40 Minutes, foloowing was what I could… Read more »

Results? Reeesulttts? Where are You? Come on out, Result…We are waiting for you.

Well It seems the Result for GWM has gone and hid itself in some nook or cronny !!!

Now it is over 3 days past the resultís deadline and yet the result is not out.

How can Google goof-up, it is simply not expected from the leader, naaa God of the Web !!!

Is it really Google or is it some third agency, who had cornered the contract to evaluate the writings? and then unable to excute the same.

There is a sense of Deja Vu, remember what happens in Meerut? 13-14 yrs old, Fifth standard students checking PG Papers?

Who is to say about the actual picture, Google is not forthcoming with the truth.

Passionate about writing the Google WordMaster Conest was something I was thrilled to read about. It took me no time to get myself registered. On the day of the contest, I set out anxious, confident and ecstatic – anxious because I had no idea of anything about the contest, confident [well, it was more of positive thinking], and ecstatic because after having heard of Google and its achievements I was simply thrilled to be able to tell people that atleast in some way I was linked with GOOGLE. {I really adore the bright colourful logo}. Expecting to find only 300… Read more »

So, My Hunch seems to be correct after all? I strongly feel that the much publicized event was actually an exercise to test the waters, maybe to retain people for some superBlog or to present relevant, human edited content – in the lines of askme.com, about.com, wikipedia.com et al. It was totally outsourced job and the 3rd agency goofed up. The Proofs of Goof-ups are many- 1. The invitations for the test were not very effectively communicated. 2. It was presented basically as an intro to Google’s various ventures and not actually as a contest attracting Talent. 3. Arrangements for… Read more »

I have participated in the Google Wordmasters Challenge 2006. As per the terms of the competition, i am supposed to know who the winners are. After waiting for quite some months, I wrote to their bangalore office asking for the results and the list of winners. No response. I wrote to them through their website asking if i wasn’t right in maligning Google’s name by giving publicity to their callousness. No response. I rest. But let me aver that I had done exceptionally well in that competition.
