Anecdotes (HTML)
July-September 2005 (vol. 27 no. 3)
pp. 96-97
Laurie Robertson, Virginia Tech
Most people view Google as primarily a Web search engine, however, in 2001 it integrated 20 years of the DejaNews Usenet archive into Google Groups. This message archive dates back from 1981, providing researchers with a trough of anecdotal material.

1. Given the vagaries of early nonbattery PCs, clocks that required the user to manually input the date and time and used Jan-1-1980 as a default, readers should carefully assess 1980- to 1983-dated posts.
