Don’t think I am ungrateful.
Over the past couple of years, those brilliant Google engineers designed stunning search options, moving Google search way, way beyond an effective, but relatively unflexible vertical search.
And over the past couple of years I’ve been pasting links to all these options into my subject pathfinders so my students can find them.
The problem is–so many of the very best search options are buried in the vast Google wilderness of labs, or in the wonderful pulldowns of more and even more–places where few but our most intrepid students and teachers dare to go.
So I’ve been playing with a prototype search page that unearths some of those beautiful buried tools. (I will be working with some of my GTA buddies with serious design talents to make this page more attractive and usable, but I thought I’d share the first proof of concept.)
