    In response to a tweet yesterday afternoon mentioning the awkwardness of the existing search offered by the state of Pennsylvania for the online version of its statutes, we created a Google-powered custom search of the state's statute pages/files.

    07/01/2010 - 13:45
    One feature that Google does not offer in its Web search is the ability to create a well-defined proximity search. Unlike paid search products, we cannot indicate how close we want our keywords to be to one another in search results.  While Google does offer the asterisk (*) to take the place of one (or more than one) word in a search (e.g., Mark * Rosch), we cannot indicate that we want...

    06/02/2010 - 13:08
    In what appears to be a tip of the hat (and a bit of one-upsmanship) to Bing's image-rich search page, Google has announced the ability personalize your default view of the Google search page with your own photo.
