Go Back in Google Time

Google recently celebrated its tenth birthday and "in honor of it" the company created a search site that will only search pages as they existed in January of 2001. It even links to old versions of the pages hosted on the Internet Archive.

You get exactly 0 results when searching for 9/11/2001.

Ironically the first hit for September 11th is a Linux Security Week article in which they discuss (lament) "Carnivore" a system implemented by the FBI under the Clinton administration to monitor internet traffic. Privacy advocates were up in arms THEN.
