Google Squared looks like an interesting tool.
“Google Squared is a search tool that helps you quickly build a collection of facts from the Web for any topic you specify.
- Facts about your topic are organized as a table of items and attributes (we call them "Squares" for fun).
- Customize these Squares to see just the items and attributes you’re interested in.
- See the websites that served as sources for the information in your Square.
- Save and share Squares with others.”
There’s some interesting results. I searched for ‘programming languages’.
It displays a list of languages, a picture of the language, a description, and what it was influenced by.
I was very surprised to see the Miranda language (apparently influenced by Haskell). Try it yourself: scroll down to Miranda. I must take a closer look at this one!
