Description

Many people use Google on a daily basis. It's simple interface and page-ranking make it a great search engine. However, there is more to Google than just simple keyword searching. In this session, Glen will discuss some of the lesser-known ways to get better results from your searches.

In addition, Glen will demo some of the features, tricks, and hacks that make Google more than just a search engine. Did you know that Google has a built in dictionary, spell checker, calculator, unit converter, and phone book? Did you know that you can get custom Google News sent to you via e-mail or RSS? Want to put a Google search form on your web site? Want a map of all the pizza places near you?

Join us for an informative (and entertaining) look at our favorite search engine. At the end of the presentation, Glen will use Google to find the answer to life, the universe, and everything.
