Google Offers Fill in the Blank Search Feature

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on August 10, 2005

“If search engines were truly intelligent, you could just pose a question the same way you would ask a person. An alternative is to get the search engine to ‘fill in the blank.’ So instead of asking [who invented the parachute?], you can enter the query [the parachute was invented by *]. (The blank, or wildcard, search is marked by * – an asterisk.)” [Google Blog]
