Google Base live and working!

Google Base is live and I just posted my first item, my mountain bike. I don't think that this will actually help me to sell it but it was the first thing I could think about that I could post. Posting an item is really easy and I wouldn't wonder if this eventually becomes the eBay killer everybody was talking about a few weeks ago when Google Base first surfaced.
Now where is my Google Wallet???

Well, let's try the base

First Base: "Posted by Bindu Reddy, Product ManagerToday we're excited to announce Google Base, an extension of our existing content collection efforts like web crawl, Google Sitemaps, Google Print and Google Video. Google Base enables content owners to easily make their information searchable online. Anyone, from large companies to website owners and individuals, can use it to submit their content in the form of data items. We'll host the items and make them searchable for free. There's more info here.Some organizations are already using Google Base. Here are a few examples.
'Students need as much information as possible when they are searching for the right college or university. Google Base helps us reach students and parents and deliver more of the information they need when making important college decisions.' - Hal Higginbotham, President, CollegeBoard.com
'We want to use knowledge and information about the environment to help motivate more responsible public and private action. With Google Base, we can bring the public key insights on sustainability issues – like climate change, human health, and resource consumption – and bring about change.' – Amy Cassara, Senior Associate, World Resources Institute
'CareerBuilder.com's business model is built on providing employers with as many avenues as possible to connect with job seekers. Feeding our jobs to Google Base "

Just observed two tornadoes

That was a cool sight, two tornadoes clearly visible from our office at the WTC in Barcelona, one over the sea, about a few miles out and one over land, not very far either. This was the first time I saw a real big tornado.
They were visible for at least ten minutes but are gone now.
Like I said a few posts ago... we now have a tornado season here in Spain!

This is so weird

It just started to snow here in Barcelona, very unusual and even more considering that it's November! Even though the snowflakes melt before touching ground, I never saw this before.
