I couldn't find any other posts on this so apologies if this is old news.

I've just noticed if you search for a persons name plus "biography" you get a short biography snippit at the top.

For example a search on "george bush biography" without the quotes ;) gives you the normal results but the top one says:

George Bush ... 43rd President of the United States; son of George Herbert Walker Bush (born in 1946)
According to [wordnet.princeton.edu...] bush

I've tried it for a few well known people and for most it seems to pull the information in from the wiki.

Anyone else noticed this?
