Part one is here, and cites references and dates about the verb ‘to google’, and asks about the syllabification and spelling of googl(e)able.
This was originally my second question, but I think it deserves a whole post of its own, and users may be more interested in its history than in its pronunciation and orthography.
Q. When was googleable or googlable first used?
So far I have unearthed the following citations
"But, still curious about why anyone, let alone his father, would want to read Quinn Scott's biography, he began searching for more information on the other members of the family; people who retained or created their fame during the computer age, and were therefore far more Googleable."
When the Stars Come Out
I actually “found” Andrew through google search in 2003, when I was searching for alternatives to EM. Therefore I should also thank Andrew for the “googlable” website he built, which brought us to work together, and the collaboration turned out to be such an enjoyable experience.
Molecular Basis of Type IV...
The following citation is from 2005 but the adjective, this time spelled “Google-able”, was being heard and used in speech a few years earlier
When Scott Painter went looking for funding for a custom-built car company in 2003, he had a relatively easy time raising $25 million. "Everybody knew who I was," he says. "I was Google-able, so it was a very easy thing to put together. That's the benefit of having some success as an entrepreneur."

Can anyone find earlier instances than these? It seems very odd that the expression Goog-able with all its spelling variants, does not appear in print prior to 2005.
