A New Playground On Google

I've just stumbled on something that could be useful - an item in Google Labs called "Experimental Search".

You can search for something, with your search results arranged either chronologically along a timeline - for example, for FA Cup finals. or geographically on a map - for example for the Battle of Britain.

However the Battle of Britain example shows the flaws with this. Along with important places from the summer of 1940 - e.g. London, Dover , Coventry and Southampton, it shows Lancaster and Clarenville, Newfoundland.

Why Lancaster ? - because of the Lancaster bomber.
Why Clarenville? - because someone there wrote a view of the film "Battle of Britain"....

It might be fun to google your own name there, though...
