doug — off the record

just a place to share some thoughts

Google A-Z

So, there’s this Google thing, right?  It’s a search engine.  You type in stuff and it finds it.

Oh, wait.  It’s also got email attached to it.  Gmail.

Oh, and you can do documents online.  Google Docs

And, websites.  Google Sites.

Actually, there’s a lot more.  A LOT more.  @pbeens is on a mission to find it all.  Appropriately, he’s collecting them in a Google Document and publishing them to the web at a Google Site.

You’ll notice at the top of the document that he’s not going at it alone.  He wants to know what’s missing.

Now, for some, that’s like a challenge!  What can we find that he hasn’t got?  It just so happened that @pmcash and myself are keeping our ears to the ground and forwarding new things that we find.  In fact, we found a couple this morning!

So, the list continues to grow and along with the list, Peter is putting a link to the actual resource.  His latest finds are marked NEW 

Consequently, you’ll never miss a new addition.  Want to be “Google-Smart” or “Google-Aware”?  You’ve got to follow this list as it continues to grow.

  1. Thanks for the coverage of my “little” project, Doug! It started as a supplement to a presentation I was doing and just grew and grew and grew! Some of the letters were challenging to fill in but I eventually got them all, thanks to the help of people like you and @pmcash.


  2. Hello Mr. Peterson,
    This is a really cool post about Google created by pbeens. I was just recently introduced to Google about four years ago and like many computer users, all I knew about was Google search. I actually just started using a few more of its features this past year. I enjoy using it a lot and finding new things to do on Google. This list is going to be something I follow because I know it will contain a lot of features that I have never heard of but will benefit me.


  3. Definitely, Chanel. And, if you find a resource that Peter hasn’t already added, just let him know.


Please share your thoughts here. I’d enjoy reading them.
