Way before I created an online presence for my web design & SEO endeavours I had been using the name Goosh online – particularly in online FPS/MMO games. When I did move onto creating my online portfolio, my blogs etc, I chose goosh.co.uk as I was, well, UK based.
Around 2008, I was regularly asked “Are you the writer of the Goosh tool?” At first I had no clue as to what people were referring to. That is until I checked out a Google search for Goosh.
It transpires that a website called Goosh.org is a free UNIX shell-like interface that allows you to quickly search Google & Wikipedia in a text-only format.
I imagine when Goosh – the unofficial Google Shell – launched in 2008 it was an amazing thing at the time. Unfortunately, due to my very limited command line experience, I don’t appreciate its awesomeness.
I hope that clears that one up for everyone.
