If Google's this important to you as well, keeping up with new directions at Google is part of learning to learn. Google never sleeps, so my advice is to sharpen your Google skills every six months or so. Not that skill-building led me back to Google today; I was there because Google's fun to explore.
Yesterday I couldn't find a link to Google's new set of pointers to merchandise and today Froogle pops up everywhere I turn. As I get into Christmas shopping, however, I need fewer choices, not "All the world's products in one place," so I wandered off.
And found Google Viewer. This new service converts your search results into slide show format. I put in "eLearning" and watched the first twenty pages go by, discovering three sources I had never visited before. Seeing the pages provides such a powerful snapshot compared to the standard text listing that I plan to visit this one over and over. Hmmm. I wonder if I can feed Google Viewer with a script to make it my site's default entry into Google. Viewer is on the page for Google Labs.
I couldn't resist leaving a note for the development team:
GoogleViewer opens new doors of perception for visual thinkers. I'm a visual learning fanatic, disappointed that our text-oriented education and training systems retard the progress of most right-brained people. I predict GoogleViewer will be wildly successful.
The main Google interface is so spartan that it's easy to overlook their ever-expanding services & tools page. The same goes for the list of features. As the year comes to a close, check out the Google Timeline.
I must do this more often. I entered links:www.internettime.com for a little ego-boo and came across this review:
