Interesting. It seems that Google is testing
Related Searches on their site. That's so nice of them, copying
something we launched on Yahoo
Search about 6 months ago.
Of course, I'm biased. I wrote
the first production version of the system that built the lists
of related terms, fine
tuned it, and whatnot. It was a pain in the ass for various
reasons, but hey, it was innovative,
Wow, and all this time later, the Search Easter
Egg still lives.
Oh, another interesting tidbit. In roughly 6 months, the core code has gone from Perl to Java and is now C++. Heh.
