Google News

Here's an interesting article about Google opening a lobbying office in D.C. from SF Gate (a San Fran news source).

It also mentions Google's interest in providing free wireless to San Francisco. Too bad Google probably won't be interested in providing free wireless to my area next....

When it comes to Google, I'm always torn between:
  • admiration over its amazing accomplishments (what doesn't Google do?); and

  • curiosity about whether it will eventually take over the world (see Epic 2014 perhaps more commonly referred to as Googlezon)... or perhaps a slightly more realistic curiosity: Google developing a monopoly on a lot of Internet-related services.
And of course, most of us in Library Land wonder about what Google's services will mean for libraries.
