I love using google as a verb (see: post headline). Keeps life interesting waiting on that C&D letter. :)
You may have come across this already in your web travels, but Google’s restore of their January 2001 index makes for some fun & interesting searching. Especially for those terms not yet coined…
As Phil Bradley points out, “Try searching for IPOD, Weblog, Twitter, “Wayne Rooney”, wii, iPhone, “David Cameron”, “credit crunch”, “sarah palin” – you’ll laugh or be amazed at just about all of the results you get!”
Or better yet, how about some legal keywords? A search for liquidated law firm Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison being an example. Or how different ediscovery looked back then… not nearly the same legal industry domination!
Anyone else care to play?
