I posted this a while ago to my Google+ feed, but 99% of you don't see that...:

http://www.powersearchingwithgoogle.com/

If you're interested in learning how to really search for things with Google then you may be interested in this. I would imagine that it's fairly useful for some of those puzzle caches...

The "class" is roughly 6 50-minute sessions, comprised of a few (5-6?) shorter You-tube videos by Daniel Russel, a Senior Research Scientist (a Google employee).

If you're interested in taking the class then I suggest you get started - while I can't find the exact date, I seem to recall that the class would be taken down in late July. Because I can't find the date online any longer, I wouldn't be surprised if that has changed and it's now available for the long term.

I'm curious what some of you think after you take the class. It starts out in the first session or two with some of the simpler concepts of searching in Google, but builds from there.

Thank you for your interest in Power Searching with Google. Class registration is now closed. Although you will no longer be able to earn a certificate, you'll still be able to view the videos and do the online activities on your own starting July 24, 2012.

Bummer, although it sounds like you can still do the whole course, you just can't get the pretty certificate to hang on the wall when you're done.
