Happy Birthday to Google. They are ten years old in my 52nd year. Who would have dreamed how the web and Google would affect our lives? In honor of their birthday, Google has created a web site which reverts you to the year 2001 ... A Googler's Odyssey:
- Google 2001 Index and Search
- search against the 2001 index
- pull up either the 2008 or 2001 web site result
Have some fun. Google has used the Internet Archive versions to make this service. For your fun, I've compared the Beatles. The 2001 web was pretty basic, and required the user to make some choices. Today's site uses Flash, music and animation ... pretty cool. Click to expand any image to full size.
