Douwe Osinga's Blog: Google Date

Tuesday, February 17, 2004

The latest in the series Google hacks, Google Date lets you enter a date (day, month, year) and it will return what Google has to say about this date in a sentence or two, three results per search.

Google doesn't optimize searches for relevance when it comes to dates. So the results aren't famous-person-dates, but random events out of the lives of random people. It makes the world seem strangely connected.
