Click the "Google Search" button on that page.
Spoiler (highlight to read):
Don't miss the article called "Google Animation" about Google acquiring the Albino Blacksheep site for a hefty amount.

Am I blind? I did not see anything about "Google Animation".

I did however, very much enjoy reading The Complete Military History of France"

Hey, did they change the page? I'm _sure_ that yesterday, when I clicked on the Google Search button (not the "did you mean" link), I got to a page that listed several articles. I can find the article by searching for "Google" on their site: Google animation (beta) Read the little article over on the right. And be sure to click on the Full Article link.

Excellent!! skip

Spoiler (highlight to read):
I don't think it's that they changed the page. It probably has to do with page rankings and whatever caused the link to be there two days ago was moved, possibly by a sudden spike in links to the google bomb page (or something like that)

I clicked on the "stick figure" animation button just below the search window on Google animation (beta) and came across some wonderful stick figure animations - in particular "Animator vs. Animation" by Alan Becker. I've seen the first one before (it's worth another look though) but the second is just as satisfying.
