Fantastic! Check this out funny results [labs.google.com]

They use merriam-webster and dictionary.com for links at top, is this new/old?

:) My favorite is still sets. Things like glossary and sets work so well by harnessing all the information out on the web.

It's pretty cool, but I always thought OMG stood for "oh my god" not "object management group" :)

It's great as long as you're looking for the definition of a term as it relates to the internet and/or computers. Try finding the traditional definition of a term used both IRL and on the 'Net and you're outta luck :)

It's funny... kind of like asking Robby the Robot to define words.

Check out the definitions for "if": [labs.google.com]

And I always wondered what "vegemite" was.

My favorite will always be our "Sets" demo though:

I'm confused...there isn't anything *new* about this right?

Google Glossary seems the same as it has been since Google Labs opened up (really great, that is!).

It should also linked to the cached pages, especially since I think the Glossary database is probably never updated.

Not really new Mfagan. I post it in june (and it was not a scoop but it think it what miss by a lot of webmasters) but I assume when ELiteWeb make a search on Google glossary today here and post a new reply Brett see it and put it in front page to change a bit the trend of the google dance :)

But here is a funny thing from that old thread from me :
This new fonctionnality, make me freeking a bit. This is a aggregation of informations who seem crawled by Google. This is a LOT of information in somewhat a little company. What do you think of that?

The funny thing of that old post is that reflect this article and thread today [webmasterworld.com...]

Funny and scrary!

Even if Google give me a million bucks a year I would not be have the place of Larry or other boss at Google for the moment for ethical and philosophal reason of the Web.

Excuse again my poor english writing.

Hey, allergic, I don't think it has occurred to anyone here in the US what a great idea it is to put cheese curds and gravy on their french fries! I smell an opportunity... it needs a new name, though, I don't think "poutine" will work here... ;)

This might seem a really stupid question, but doesn't this forums charter say not to post links to google tools?
