Google Notebook: Create shared living documents with your search results

GuyPardon Guy Pardon Profile: GuyPardon

In the latest installment in our continuing exploration of “Google Office,” we submit Google Notebook as our latest discovery.

Google Operating System, a blog that unofficially tracks the latest and greatest Google announcements, posted recently about how to use Google Notebook to create shared “living documents,” similar to a wiki, that can be updated with information as you find it searching on Google.

Create a Notebook first and then as you find relevant results, click “Note this” and your link will be added to the page. You can make a notebook public or let your family, friend, coworkers or clients know that the document is available for browsing.

Take a brief tour of Google Notebook here before downloading, if you like. Google Notebook is also available as a Firefox extension.

Chrisn Sherman has posted a closer look at Google Notebook over at SearchEngineLand, comparing the feature-set to competitors like Furl, Yahoo’s MyWeb, Microsoft’s Live Toolbar and Ask’s MyStuff. Michael Arrington noted a number of similarities between Google Notebook and deli.cio.us in a post over at TechCrunch, including a number of screenshots of both products.
