Our Google Labs exploration, this exciting adventure, continues…
In Quotes is an application that allows you to query what a few top politicians have said about a topic. Politicians, so far are rather limited, but it is interesting fare.
I typed in “blogging” and pulled one quote from Obama, which says, ”
“The benefit of blogging for constituents is that it provides them with yet another way to communicate with the people they voted–or didn’t vote–into office,” Obama said by e-mail. “I think any tool that increases civic participation is…” Obama,Thu, 26 Jan 2006 ZDNet
So key in other terms and have some fun. I am looking forward to when more choices for politicians or other thought leaders are available. I would also like to know what other thought leaders in other industries have to say. I would even go a step further and say, “What would my mother say?”
Now the really good thing about this, and other applications, is that the folks at Google Labs want to hear from you. So, if you have a Google account just click on the DISCUSS button below and share your insights on the tool.
Always love to hear the latest from you! Thanks for keeping us up to date in the blogging world. Oops! Did I sound OLD? I meant “blogoshpere” —another tiny lapse caused by my boomer brain!
You are so smart! Thanks for finding yet another cool tool (among the many you have shared) for us to learn about and use. I can see how Google Quotes can really help us gain visibility in the blogosphere.

Good stuff, Rosie. Can’t wait to see if this one stays alive. Love that you keep us “on the cutting edge” of the new stuff coming down the pike. Good job and thanks a bunch.
Thank you all for the encouraging comments. Just today I was thinking about returning home from this Google Lab Adventure. But today, decided to stay a wee bit longer and search for more cool tools that can enhance our blogging expertise.
