No, but it's a web-based service or application that has had (and will
continue to have) a tremendous real/potential impact on the web-based
services that libraries offer. Close enough for me.

From the Web4Lib website:
"The *Web4Lib* electronic discussion is for the discussion of issues
relating to the creation, management, and support of library-based
World-Wide Web servers, services, and applications. "
Google isn't a library based Web server, service or application, is it?
While I don't think we shouldn't talk about Google, the list in general
seems to spend a lot more time on Google discussions than on 'how we can
improve library-based servers, services and applications.
Now, if people want to talk about the possiblity of using the Google
local search product on their library-based website and whether that
provides an acceptable level of service, that'd be fascinating.
