Currently, people may access historic news content via Google News, but in a few months users will be able to search these newspapers via the main Google search results. The idea is to help Google's newspaper publisher partners widen the readership of their archives online, and of course, get more people stumbling upon and clicking on Google ads.

More than 1,700 attendees descended on the San Francisco Design Center Councourse Sept. 8 to see 52 companies present at TechCrunch50. Forged by TechCrunch Founder Michael Arrington and serial entrepreneur Jason Calacanis (Mahalo, WebLogs to name a couple), TechCrunch50 is intended as a more startup-friendly show than Demo, the classic startup showcase it intends to slay. Calacanis said he intends TechCrunch shows to carry the free, easy vibe of the Sundance Film Festival. With that in mind, here are some scenes from TechCrunch50.
