Live Trains: Lovely experiment

http://www.swisstrains.chhttp://www.swisstrains.ch/

Its an alpha version of a real-time train map. Tracking the Swiss train system, SwissTrains gives
you a glimpse of the trains as they make their way around Zurich and
surroundings.
The red circles marked with an S represent the trains,
while the red squares make up the stations. Clicking on any station
reveals a schedule with arrival and departure times.
If you click on a
moving train and click follow in the drop down menu, you’ll get a
bird’s eye view with satellite images of the train as it
traverses the country.

Street names and stations are listed as well in
the hybrid map view.


Its a beautiful example of a live-meshup.

Google in 2001

Google has brought back the index from January 2001
to show how many things have changed in almost 8 years. At that time,
Google's index included 1,326,920,000 web pages and it was the most
comprehensive index of a search engine.

Google explains that the
index from January 2001 is the earliest available. "Well, for various
technical reasons that are too boring to go into, earlier versions of
our index aren't readily accessible. But we did still want to offer
users a chance to search an older index as a way of looking back at web
history, and the January 2001 index is the best we can do."

It is extremely interesting exercise... do click on the "View old version in the internet Archive' link for a few results to see the web pages as of 2001 itself.

You will not believe how much world has changed in last 8 years.
