Google sees green

This morning, Google's blog tells us about a new mashup they have been working on with the Earth Day Network.  The domain they registered recently, googlegreenmaps.com, etc. wasn't exactly for what I thought, though it does have to do with the envrironment.

It is interesting though how quickly this domain was used after it was purchased (it was registered on May 17th) -- this should put to rest any arguements that Google never does anything with their domains, and in some cases they can be a good way to peer into the near future of the company.
