What Does Google Think Of...
What does Google think of you, your friends, your neighborhood, or your favorite movie?
If you’ve ever wondered what people think of your home town, your favorite band, your favorite snack food, or even you, Googlism (http://www.googlism.com/) may provide you something useful.
The interface is dirt simple. Enter your query and check the appropriate radio button to specify whether you’re looking for a who, a what, a where, or a when. You can also use the tabs to see what other objects people are searching for and what searched-for objects are the most popular. A word of warning: some of these are not work-safe.
What You Get Back
Googlism will respond with a list of things Google believes about the
query at hand, be it a person, place, thing, or moment in time. For
example, a search for
“What” returns, along with a
laundry list of others:
Perl is a fairly straightforward Perl is aesthetically pleasing Perl is just plain fun
Among the more humorous results for
Steve Jobs and
steve jobs is my new idol steve jobs is at it again steve jobs is apple's focus group
To figure out what page any particular statement comes from, simply copy and paste it into a plain old Google search. That last statement, for instance, came from an article titled “Innovation: How Apple does it” at http://www.gulker.com/ra/appleinnovation.html.
For the most part this is a party hack—a good party hack. Its a fun way to aggregate related statements ...
