Google Base

Google Base goes live. Its a very interesting idea: presense without persistence. Its the "I need a place to post on a whim." The examples given of items that people might want to post include party and event planning services, recipes, a used car listing and genome of the 1918 influenza pandemic. The variety is there and it simply amounts to more searchable content. I like the interface. The problem, of course, is that there is no way to tell if any of its actually valid... (but then some say that is true of the web in general ;-)
