Submission + - Google People Finder Aids Japan Quake Victims (

JustABlitheringIdiot writes: "Google has launched a version of its Person Finder service for people caught up in the Japanese earthquake.

The website acts as a directory and message board so people can look for lost loved ones or post a note saying they are safe.

It is designed to be embedded on websites and social network pages to reach as wide an audience as possible.

Several thousand records were submitted in the first few hours of the service being up."

All programmers are playwrights and all computers are lousy actors.
