Google Labs

A peek into the ideas that Google is toying with at Google Labs. Says News.com, “At launch, these experiments include a glossary, a voice-search application, keyboard shortcuts for navigating through search results, and a tool for creating sets of Web sites or other items derived from a smaller set of like items.”

On a related but separate note, there are three good links for knowing more about how Google works (its PageRank technology):
a simple explanation of PageRank
the original paper by Google’s founders
a PageRank calculator

It would be interesting to apply some of the PageRank ideas to Blogs, especially the BlogRoll and the BlogPosts, to come out with clusters — the neighbourhoods among bloggers and blog posts which probably exist but are difficult to see from the “street level”.
