Today, Google launched a special search site for Hurricane Katrina information. I worked on the "Search for People" feature. We're collecting data from all over the web, and making it possible for people to find their friends and relatives with one search.
Anyway, I just wanted to take this opportunity to brag a little about the cool stuff I get to do at work. It's pretty rare that writing software gets you so palpably close to doing good things for the world, so it's a real high when it happens.
