Siva Vaidhyanathan’s Googlization blog
I am remiss not to have mentioned Siva Vaidhyanathan‘s new blog about Google and the implications of their projects: The Googlization of Everything. It’s really top notch commentary on Google, with further depth, detail and comprehensiveness than is usually found in a blog. Note that Siva says it is a book in progress.

That’s where I focus my nightmares.
In defense of Google, it provides a great search engine which has helped revolutionize the speed and method in which people obtain information.
Coming at this VERY late to offer a link to an audio of Mr. Vaidhyanathan’s Windsor lecture at the University of Illinois. It was dynamic and brilliant. I learned so much from him about Google and its implications to libraries.
