  1. Sir,I am happy to see that.Because of Udacity, I chose my semester project as search engine. I didn't know even a bit of designing a search engine. I chose the project because of Udacity. I am thankful

  2. I think Thurn has been at the forefront of this movement..He deserves this award and many more to come..I hope he carries his ambition and ingenuity to any other work he might start down the line
