John Battelle's Searchblog: base.google.com (Or...All Your Base Are Belong To Google)

WOW! BASE.GOOGLE.COM! This fires up the imagination for all sorts of things--ebay-google, craigslist-google, calendar-google and much much more.

The ramifications of a common, searchable data base is huge and mind boggling. If you have not read Jeremy Siegel's book, "The Future for Investors", I recommend it. His comparison of Google to the Gutenberg Press around 1455 or the discovery of paper around 100 helps one understand the power of sharing information.

A searchable data base that grows exponentially would be fantastic!
