Google Labs

In this economy, it's amazing that Google can experiment with technology so much. I love the Google Labs, where they showcase ideas that aren't ready for prime time. Most of their ideas are quite good. The glossary example, for instance, is quite nice. A search for "information architecture" brings up a few of our IA definitions and a few of the systems architecture definitions. Google Sets is also quite interesting. It creates sets of items based on a few sample sets you give it. I'm still trying to figure out what it is doing exactly, but it seems like some kind of cluster analysis using proximity of terms.
