Unable to drive fifty-five down the information superhighway, the New York Review of Books cooks up a preview passage from their Jan. 13th issue! Inside: Robert Darnton on Google Book Search, which has become “the largest library and book business in the world”, and on Google’s responsibility to help create a Digital Public Library of America. France, the Netherlands, Japan, Australia, Norway, and Finland have already begun plans to digi-make their own public libraries and archives. You’re gonna tell me that Google’s a weaker nation than the freakin’ Netherlands? Then again, as seen above, they have proven publicly fond of that one-eared ghoul Van Gogh. Damn you back to hell, Ghost of Van Gogh.
