Google Searchmash

Browsing my Reader feeds, I came across one that was last updated in 2006. The very last post read - "Searchmash, an experimental site started by Google. Uses Ajax and some other web2.0-ish features."

I'd never heard of searchmash, so I tried the 3 yo link to It still works.

Today it reads ... "searchmash has gone the way of the dinosaur".

Techcrunch as a Nov 2008 article on the demise of searchmash. Looks like Google used it as an unbranded lab for a while, before they transitioned to their current "lab" strategy.

Now you know.
