Interesting Google Feature

We've fallen on a bit of a silent period here at Manson Music since the holidays but we are still here. It's just that the business of the season, coupled with that fact that we've compiled a pretty comprehensive blog here so far, leaves us with little to post at the moment. Still, leave it to Google to provide us with yet another interesting way to search the net, thus enabling me to pass this on to those of you who haven't seen it yet. Google has added a new "timeline" feature that allows you to search and view the results chronologically, so to speak. You can actually search just about anything with a history, from countries like England to institutions like the Federal Reserve, but I think it might work best with people. Try Charles Manson with it and you'll see what I mean. You get a nice little graph at the top of your results that is divided by decade. Within each of these decades you also get mini bar graphs indicating how much information you can expect to find during each time period. Clicking on each decade you can continue to refine your results by the individual years and even months. It's actually a very cool new way to search and I can already think of many ways to use it. The syntax is simple. Just try it out by pasting this into the search bar:

As always, thanks for stopping by and if you have any requests or material we're missing here let us know. Obscurities, links, and comments are always welcome!

Thanks for the feature!

I've been amazed at the number of fans Charlie has online. It would be great if there were a central place where we could congregate. Social networking sites are very popular lately, it would be great if there were one dedicated to fans of Charlie and his music and ideas. Don't you think?

I agree with zab. I'm sure there are a few, but one that is more organized would be nice.

Well there is the forum over at:

http://www.charliemanson.net/

If that's what you had in mind, but when you mention "social networking" I get the image of myspace or facebook.

Cheers, thanks for checking out the blog!

Well, you can easily create your own social network these days with sites like this one:

http://www.ning.com/

I pretty much have my plate full these days and don't have the time for something like that but I'd be glad to join if one of you does the work. Although I think it's easy enough to set one up, it would take a certain amount of dedication to maintain.

do you know how Sadie is doing?

Psyche Zenobia said...

I checked out your social network beginnings. Pretty cool! I'll join as soon as possible.

Don't know anything about Sadie beyond that she has cancer and, I think, lost a leg to it recently. She's been "born again" for a very long time but it doesn't seem to be helping her parole chances.

A sympathetic release so she can die at home is perfectly reasonable, even Bugliosi has said he doesn't see a problem with that.
I think it's still the media attention that is holding these proceedings up.
