Goosh, Mickey!

Posted on

I haven’t been very geeky in this blog to date. I’ve only been sort of geeky in life, although since I have become a technical consultant, I’m getting a lot more geeky these days. That said, I have to fess up to being quite happy with GUI interfaces for lots of things. But thanks to a post by Mr. J. Wylie, I now know about Goosh, a Unixshell style interface to Google. No value judgement – I still spend more time in a browser than in a shell, but for those who like a command-line interface, it is excellent. I may get seduced by things like the wiki command: >wiki [keywords] searches Wikipedia for whatever keywords you type in (no brackets). Faster than loading the Wikipedia home page and typing in the keywords. Thanks to Stefan Grothkopp for Goosh!
