Google marked International Women's Day with this changed logo. An improvement, I thought, on the rather culturally-specific Christmas version. Google has become my default search engine. It's good and quick, and turns nicely into the verb 'to google'. But, it would be better if it remembered me, and stored what I like (a bit like Amazon does) and spared me the dross. After some initial enthusiasm, I'm not really finding Google scholar particularly useful. Surely, anyone who's at all serious must be using electronic databases. Blog-searching is a bit more of a specialist sport, but there's more on it's way. This report covers the hot favourites. Blogstreet is good because it maps your affinity space pictorially, in what it describes as a neighbourhood.
