In advance of Nelson Mandela’s funeral service on Sunday in Qunu, South Africa, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Reverend Mpho Tutu, the first female Irish president, Mary Robinson, and Sir Richard Branson came together for a digital eulogy using Google+ Hangouts.

The conversation was hosted by Peace Jam and The Nelson Mandela Centre of Memory, and moderated by CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

Share your thoughts with #MandelaTribute, and watch the full hangout here to celebrate the life of an individual who changed the world.

This is a really great addition for Search.  For most sites, there is now a gray "site information" target next to the green URL.  If you click anywhere on the gray target, you'll get a summary of information about the site (which gives you a quick heads up about their organization, their take on things, and their perspective).  Experiment with it a bit.  I tried the query [ paleoclimate ] and quickly found that in the first 10 links on the SERP, there were a variety of opinions about climate change--from official cautious commentary by .GOV sites, through radical denial by climate change skeptics.  

With the new "about this site" link, you can get a quick overview of the site.  Incredibly handy for doing research.  (Perhaps especially for students!)
