This is interesting. As part of their 10th birthday celebration, Google released a special version that searches the Internet as it existed in 2001.
Google Circa January 2001
We really used to use this thing at iNetNow?
Some interesting finds:

911 (unbelievable in hindsight)
Timely Persuasion (just horses, no book)
facebook myspace (nothing!)
Tried to find a GoogleWhack back then using modern terms but came up empty. Ideas?
I was, however, able to find one that still works today...at least until this post gets indexed:
Atnos Fitzwilly (just read the excerpt on the results page...)
