Google Found to Be Testing Classified Ads - New York Times

The concept of placing classified ads on pages of related content is simply an extension of what Google already does. The ramifications are big. Just think of how many newspaper classified ads are published each day at substantial fees.

Like Jim Brinkley of Legg Mason used to say, the lowest cost provider wins. could be used for many different purposes. I like the concept of being able to find every detail of a football or baseball season. I wonder how many fall festivals there are in how many little towns across America? A searchable data base of of the best barbeque restaurants would be neat, especially if it was mashed with Google Maps.

Google is about making information available. Information is the key to productivity. Googleis changing the world.
