All this week, Google, the Mountain View search engine, will feature sketches of cartoon hero Dilbert on its homepage at www.google.com.
The infamous office worker Dilbert, created by Scott Adams, will appear in a daily sketch with his cartoon office mates as they attempt to redesign the Google logo. ``This partnership exceeded my wildest dreams,'' said Adams. ``I hoped I would get a free Google shirt, and I got three of them -- plus a mug.''
Google co-founder Sergey Brin, a Dilbert fan, came up with the idea. ``He wanted to work with him in any way,'' said Google spokeswoman Eileen Rodriguez. ``It was something fun, and Scott shares the spirit of our culture at Google.''
Adams is not getting paid for his story line or drawings, which will conclude Friday. Nor is the Google logo being changed by the company -- no matter what new design Dilbert and his buddies come up with. ``The purpose is to be fun and have some spontaneity,'' said Rodriguez. ``We're hoping it will be well-received by our users.''
