Trish Snyder and I have taken a peek at Google Base. It’s a general purpose database they’ve started in which you can post information about anything. I guess it’s supposed to make eBay nervous.
Here’s an interesting thing. If you enter "Relay for Life" into the search box you get five links to notices about Relay for Life in the Idealist.org database (for example) . Didn’t know about them before this.
