All Your Base Are Belong To Us

All your base are belong to us” is a cult net phrase that was poorly translated from a Japaneese video game that essentially meant “we have taken over your base (or empire).” In the light of that, I bring you Base.Google.

Google Base is

a place where you can easily submit all types of online and offline content that we’ll host and make searchable online. You can describe any item you post with attributes, which will help people find it when they search Google Base. In fact, based on the relevance of your items, they may also be included in the main Google search index and other Google products like Froogle, Google Base and Google Local.

It will be interesting to see how popular this becomes. It has the potential to become a massive database with massive amounts of searchable information that has never been available before. It also has the potential to be an overwhelming glob of data without any relevance to be found in searches. Try this search for recipies as an example. One that that is good is that you can search within search results as well so you can refine what you are looking for. I would say that Google Base is an extension of Google Search and can be used as a suppliment to standard searches and when looking for specific items. I suppose we will have to try it out to get a better feel for its capabilities. So check it out for more searching needs!

    At least they admit they want to take over the world.

    I’m glad I can Jackie, although I think blogging/commenting is an addiction / mode of procrastination, you just have more discipline than I do!

    I am ok with Google taking over the world, as long as they provide free email. ;)

    It’s only a matter of time before children are named after “Google”.

    Google (or Googliana) Jones doesn’t actually sound too bad.
