Google Knowledge Graph (and other cool stuff)

I’m not posting this to have a rousing debate about Google and their effect on libraries and share this Neil Gaiman quote with you and ask for applause.  So, I’m just going to say this: I love the recent changes Google has made to its search engine.  I love the knowledge graph results.  I love the personal recommendations.  I love being able to have my email show up in my search results (hey, I’ve already answered my question in the past!  Why do it again?)

Now I just step back for a moment and think: “just imagine how awesome this could’ve been if we would’ve focused on doing something like this for our OPAC instead of debating on and on about Google and libraries in the past?”
