Web Stractions Takes Us On A Trip Down Google Memory Lane
Check out this post on Web Stractions, where Dodger uses the Internet Archive to look at various incarnations of Google, including the original Stanford prototype, the 1999 public launch, and the late 2000 version, which is basically what we have today.

Thanks for the links. Some very cool stuff. I especially liked the detailed statistics on what the Backrub engine was doing. Now I really want to see the Backrub logo, which was basically someone's hand placed on a scanner.

Yeah, I think I linked to that (and another page there about the anniversary of AltaVista) about a week ago.
