Google Provides Access to Full Usenet Archives
Google also mentioned that it is working to add posting functionality. The company expects to offer posting by no later than mid-May. Frequent Deja.com users were suprised when Google acquired the company and suddenly moved the search technology over to the Google.com website, but Google so far has moved quickly to integrate the technology.
Google provides a variety of ways for users to search through the vast collection of Usenet conversations. Users can do a simple keyword search or they can limit the results by selecting a specific author, subject or newsgroup. Users can also select a specific date range to search through. The Usenet database can also be browsed by individual newsgroups. An introductory guide and a Faq are provided for new Usenet users. Google also recently added a Google Friends newsletter for those who want to keep up with future changes.
