Pages Larry & Sergey Forgot

I've been researching search engines, search technology and Google for a number of years now. About 6 years ago, I happened upon documents which appear to be the original first drafts of "The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine" by Larry Page and Sergey Brin. As you may or may not know, it's in this paper originally published in 1998 that Larry Page and Sergey Brin propose a prototype search engine called Google.

These documents are interesting, obscure, possibly important from a historical perspective but, either way other folks should know they exist. To date, there is little if any mention of these documents as far as I can find.

Last modified on Tuesday November 25, 1997, http://infolab.stanford.edu/~page/google.html is titled "The Anatomy of a Search Engine". It's in the later, "stable" version of this paper that Larry Page and his friend Sergey Brin present Google.

In terms of last modification time, the next draft by Sergey Brin seems to have been posted 7 hours later. http://infolab.stanford.edu/~sergey/google.html was last modified at 12:49:15·GM the same day.
