Using the Yahoo API’s term extraction and image search services, here are two illustrated years of Boing Boing.
Google is videoblogging about female Googlers [MPG] (see their post). This is kind of what Microsoft is doing with their Channel 9. I think the MSDN videos are more blog-like though – Google’s first foray into video blogging (with intro, smooth transitions, bright sunny colors, and easy listening background music) feels a little like a TV ad. It’s still very interesting.
Milly noticed Google’s site operator now works not only for a domain, but for sub-folders as well. You can now enter site:www.example.com/something/. I think this is new; previously you were stuck with the “inurl” operator, which didn’t work quite as precise.
Alex from China translated some of Microdoc and my Google cartoons into Chinese. 谢谢！
“Googie is one of those things you’ve seen a million times, but you just didn’t know it had a name. It’s a Jetsons-ish space-age type design that looks hopelessly quaint these days. In “The Incredibles,” you see it reflected in the design of things on Syndrome’s island.”
Is Google slowly (and quietly) updating its cache size for web pages? It surely seems so when you look at specific search results. Previously, Google would index only up to around 101k, but the results now show sizes like 513k or 287k. [Thanks Telendro!]
