This is a really neat application that helps you visualize boolean searches. And I think that this sort of approach to creating queries could be extended a lot - my first thought was that it could function as a generic sentence constructor, which in turn would be really usefuil for language learning and logic. There are also curriculum resources. Via Miguel Guhlin. Total: 341

Re: Boolify

This application is gold for library staff working with kids. Boolify is instantly understandable for kids, even kids with poor English. I love it for my own research into library studies. We need to talk it up and get the word out to library professionals and kids trying to wade through thr google soup.
