"the world's greatest encyclodictionalmanacapedia"

"Answers Corporation, founded in 1999, (previously GuruNet) owns and operates Answers.com.

"Answers.com is an advertising-supported, free website. Since its launch in January 2005, it has become one of the leading information sites on the Internet. Answers.com's collection of over three million answers is drawn from over 60 titles from brand-name publishers, as well as original content created by Answers.com's own editorial team. The site offers useful answers in categories like business, health, travel, technology, science, entertainment, arts, history and many more.

"Answers.com is an ideal tool for the millions of people who must find and deal with all kinds of information as part of their daily routine, among them: writers, editors, students, educators, marketers, journalists, lawyers, and professionals. In addition to these markets, we are developing content for specific additional vertical markets that need a compelling source of relevant content.

"As the search engine industry matures and expands in both user awareness and revenues, the core driver to this growth is the content that the various engines index in order to rank and then present to the user. Answers.com is continually adding and optimizing content to provide the "perfect page" to our loyal user base, and to users finding our content through the search engines."

Ask Jeeves
Another Internet search engine

These idiots have walked away from their nice, friendly "Ask Jeeves" logo, but it will always be "Ask Jeeves" to us.

"After ten years of dutifully serving a growing population of internet users, Jeeves decided to step down as the face of AskJeeves.com, and retire in style. Jeeves symbolized a traditional, at-your-service butler which made people feel comfortable and at home with asking any type of question.

"As the web became more of a real-time utility for people, Jeeves' job dramatically changed. Users came to Ask Jeeves for more sophisticated searches. Searches that were informational, navigational, and ultimately, transactional. Ask.com users wanted a search engine to help them search, get and do whatever they needed -- at a moment's notice.

"This drove us to focus on improving our robust search engine technology and give users the Web's most useful set of tools, and gave Jeeves the opportunity to relax. Today, as Ask.com we are singularly focused on helping users find what they need through the complicated, exciting, ever-changing web. No matter what the search, Ask.com is committed to meeting the search challenge."

Dictionary.com


Dictionary.com is a multi-source dictionary search service produced by Lexico Publishing Group, LLC, a leading provider of language reference products and services on the Internet.

To use the dictionary, simply type a word in the blue search box that appears at the top of every page and then click the 'Search' button. This will perform a search for the word in the several dictionaries hosted on our site (see below). If you don't know how to spell the word, just guess. You will get a list of suggestions if you are wrong.

Note that Dictionary.com does not produce all the dictionaries that appear on our Web site; we simply make them available. In that respect we are more like a bookstore or library than a publisher. Thus any comments regarding the content of the definitions that appear on our site should properly be directed to the publisher or copyright holder. The source of each entry is given immediately after the entry in question; follow the source link for information about the dictionary, including publisher contact information.

Google
An Internet search engine, a mega business, and...

Google's "About Us" page says a lot, but absolutely nothing about what Google actually is.

Maybe they don't want us to know.

Maybe they don't know themselves.

Maybe they DO know, but are concerned that it might be something different tomorrow.

Wikipedia is much more helpful (here, as elsewhere). It defines Google as follows:

"Google Inc is an American multinational software corporation, first incorporated as a privately held corporation in September 1998, that specializes in search engine, information retrieval technology and online advertising. With a market capitalization of US$118.32 billion as of June 2006, Google is the largest internet search company in the world, almost twice as large as rival Yahoo. Google has since become well known for its corporate culture and innovative, clean products, and has a major impact on online culture.

"Google began as a research project in January, 1996 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, two Ph.D. students at Stanford University. They hypothesized that a search engine that analyzed the relationships between websites would produce better results than existing techniques which essentially ranked results according to how many times the search term appeared on a page. Convinced that the pages with the most links to them from other highly relevant web pages must be the most relevant pages associated with the search, Page and Brin tested their thesis as part of their studies, and laid the foundation for their search engine. As Google grows, many analysts are finding that the company is becoming more 'corporate'. In 2005, articles in The New York Times and other sources began suggesting that Google had lost its anti-corporate, Don't Be Evil philosophy."

Tell me about it.

Notable Names Database (NNDB)
"The Somewhat Official But Always Interesting Notable Names Database Weblog"

"NNDB is an intelligence aggregator that tracks the activities of people we have determined to be noteworthy, both living and dead. Superficially, it seems much like a "Who's Who" where a noted person's curriculum vitae is available (the usual information such as date of birth, a biography, and other essential facts.)

"But it mostly exists to document the connections between people, many of which are not always obvious. A person's otherwise inexplicable behavior is often understood by examining the crowd that person has been associating with.

"Eventually, we will have synopses and analyses of creative works by the people in the database, including their books, films, and recordings."

As at this date, over 18,500 names are in the profile.

Stanley Bing is there.
