I wanted to experiment some more with X-Ray Goggles so I decided to take on the Personal Search Engine assignment. I decided to make mine somewhat ridiculous, so… some backstory. For years I have used the phrase, “Mayonnaise, peanuts, and cucumbers,” as an exclamation of frustration. “Mayonnaise” for short, when the situation is only minimally frustrating. So I decided to create the Mayonnaise search, with natural derivations such as Mmail, etc. I also altered the “I’m feeling lucky” button to give you options such as, “I’m feeling peanuts.” The hardest alteration was to adjust the name of the search itself, as Google was placed as an image. Luckily I was able to erase the image and add my title as a heading. Other personalizations included putting some science and politics search tabs towards the bottom, and being more forceful in encouraging citizens to vote. Ultimately this was a fun exercise that again emphasized the malleability of the Internet. The full site can be seen here.
