Trivia buffs could get lost for hours in the calendar
Mukilteo, WA (PRWEB) December 30, 2006
Seattle, WA, December 30, 2006 - Google Answers researchers have created "365 Days of Google Answers," a calendar for 2007 with facts and research for each day of the year.
"365 Days of Google Answers" includes a brief historical connection for each day and a link to a detailed Answer about the topic. On January 24, the day the Eskimo Pie was patented in 1921, researcher Pafalafa tells the story behind it and the connection to Russell Stover Candy Company. For Valentine's Day, Australian Robert Skelton (who is single) uses the power of the Internet to reveal "The Secret of Women".
The calendar, available at dailycalendar.googlepages.com, includes information on search engines and their limitations, as well as tips for using Google's search more effectively. It was edited by Andrew Czernek, who answered questions on the Google Answers service under the screen name Omnivorous.
"Though Google decided to discontinue Google Answers, there is still a great database of almost 69,000 questions and answers with some of the most fascinating content on the internet," says Czernek. "Many Google Answers are unique, involving personal experiences or original research. For example, Tutuzdad -- with more than 20 years experience as a law enforcement officer -- discusses the triaging of 911 emergency calls on February 16, the anniversary of the first emergency phone service in 1968."
Because Google Answers also required researchers to provide hyperlinks to original sources of information and describe their search technique, the Answers are both a live link to pictures, movies, audio and a tutorial on how to organize Internet searches. "Trivia buffs could get lost for hours in the calendar," concludes Czernek.
A daily RSS feed is also available for the calendar website.
