Earlier in June, Google dropped one of the world's BEST search engines. If you ever wanted a clean search limited to stuff related to government....now you don't have one!
but if you used this tool and will miss it, you're not alone. Tweet @google, or introduce me to someone there so I can find out more. I think this is a tool worth fighting for.
Readers of the new book about Google, "In the Plex" know that Google is all about the numbers. I don't know what Google was thinking when they "killed UncleSam".While I did love the no-ads version of UncleSam, how did Google miss the opportunity that $550 Billion worth of federal vendors might appreciate to connect with federal buyers?

about the demise of www.google.com/unclesam compares the competing search engine, www.search.usa.gov. And he does let us know he helped build it. But ..in my opinion, not nearly as good.
If you agree...tell Google. @google on twitter, or tell me who you know there, and I will ask them what they were thinking.
