Something old: Googling our past

Did Google know you in 2001?

Just for kicks, Google has put up its 2001 index (the oldest available) for searching. Try it. Look up yourself, your family, famous people who weren’t famous then. Whatever floats your boat.

I’m in there, multiple times.

*Props to the Washington Post for keying me to this.

*Also, try Googlism for your name, if you haven’t before.

UPDATE: The 2001 index is only available until the end of the month, according to the Post.
