A Different Look at the Google/Microsoft Book Projects

There is a thoughtful and provocative essay by Anthony Grafton in the most recent New Yorker on the digitization projects by Google and Microsoft.  He places these attempts to create a universal library in the context of how these projects are limited in comparison to their goals.  Well worth reading.  You can find it here.

As a side note, this is the 1,000th post on this blog.  Happy milestone (or millstone, or whatever).
