NPR [National Public Radio, US]: Google's Plan Prompts a Question: What's
on the Web?

This week, the search engine Google announced plans to digitize
millions of library books and make them searchable online. Are we
getting closer to the day when most of the world's knowledge is a click

[ http://www.npr.org/rundowns/rundown.php?prgId=5&prgDate=current ]

Key Players interviewed, e.g., Michael Keller (Stanford Univesrity and
High Wire Press), Brewster Kale (Internet Archive),
Paul Gerhardt (BBC Creative Archive)

This is a *VERY* Important episode of _Talk of the Nation_ and IMHO is
a Must Hear !
