Google Search: superfund near East Palo Alto, CA 94303: Here's an interesting example of Google's new local search.  Instead of searching for hotels near my house, I asked for "superfund" (as in toxic waste sites).  Its top 10 results includes 4 toxic sites, 3 city agencies, 2 consulting firms that advise about superfund issues, and one newspaper.  The newspaper link is an odd one: it points to a page where an environmental advocacy group asks people to write letters to the newspaper!  Changing the query to "superfund site" adds a company that sold software to a superfund-related company.  I also looked for "USAID" as a way to find local people in international development, and got a similar mix with a few interesting bits and some odd ones.  Google calls it a beta version; it's US only.  It'll be interesting to see if it improves.  11:15:29 PM  permalink
