Google fun

This, like my earlier squirrel stuff, is a bit off-topic, but it's fun. After attending an online conference presentation today in which the presenter said that libraries are in the perfect position to aggregate all available information on books, from reviews about them to digitizations of the books themselves to whatever else, better than Google (because libraries so have the money to risk enormous lawsuits...), all this somehow seems appropriate to me. By the way, yes, I use Google. Lots. I just don't preach the Google gospel like some.

Google Announces Plan to Destroy All Information It Can't Index - This one's a few years old, but still good.

Then there's this new video. Looks like Google is softening its position on non-believers a little.
