If you don't actually know anyone in Boston, don't go to link and bring the site down.

I didn't know anything like this existed.

Are you doubting Google's ability of having everything you ever dreamed about!?  Keep in mind, the founders are contemplating mining asteroids.

Thank God for a website that has the capabilities to do this. All bad things about them aside, if you have the power use it wisely.

Maybe they should fire up the terrorist funded so we can find the a-holes who did this.

My ex from high school lives in Boston. Or did in 1998. I wonder what she's up to now...

I think Google can handle the traffic.

"When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, 'Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.' To this day, especially in times of 'disaster,' I remember my mother's words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers - so many caring people in this world."

There's some good conspiracy fodder here.

Your heart is in the right place, but do you really think we can fark Google? Do you realize that some dusty corner of a Google data center has seven cached copies of everything ever posted/linked/clicked/commented by a fark user sitting in it? We're a footnote to them.

I think in this case, Google qualifies as too big to fail.

Thanks for that.

We lost our cat at 7:30a this morning. She had a massive, violent seizure and died in my arms. I've spent most of the day comforting the rest of the family (I've only been around for a few years, but since my stepdad is a vet tech they look to me for help with the animals). I realize it's a small tragedy in comparison, but yeah, finding even the smallest little morsel can help you deal with all the shiat in the world without sacrificing your own humanity. Thanks again.

Does Google People Finder have any mobile apps... I didn't notice the offer of any.    Also, only appears to allow you to put in data or search for data... would be nice if you could put in a name you are looking for and your email/mobile contact info, and maybe every 5 minutes, have something that pings all of the searches and will text/email the person that someone reported them.   Also, I didn't try to enter fake info, so, don't know if they let you put a face shot up, but, I'd think that would be helpful.

It is an open source project, I may put some time aside to enhance this a bit.

That is so cool. I just registered that I survived the Challenger explosion.

So how useful IS this if the cell service is shut down and the news agencies are DoSing the net?

Mr. Rogers was at the marathon? Someone earlier said on the news about looking for the helpers and someone just posted that is was Mr. Rogers

I wasn't serious cause Mr. Rogers is dead but the guy on tv said his mother told him to look for the helpers
