Google Print's Objective Revealed!

According to a USA Today article, "Google said its objective was to build the world's largest online card catalog."

What's more, "Google Print product manager Adam Smith says the biggest misconception is that Google's master plan is to display entire books online. "We don't have permission to do that," he says. "We're a finding tool, like a digital card catalog."

This is very insightful acknowledgement of what the Google Print initiative is all about. And a welcome one. Many people are tired of hearing how the compute is going to do away with reality as we know it. On the contrary, if it's a useful tool, it will actually enhance reality! That's what progress is all about. Right?

I still maintain that librarians need to be prepared for a rennaisance: free online services like this will mean better access to libraries and greater demand for books. Not only will libraries' collections grow, but our numbers of patrons will too.

mlm marketing I'm so excited to finally found a mlm business opportunity with a company that really cares and actually knows my name at corporate headquarters. Growing at a rate of 30% per month with a back office of many tools that are at no charge to you. Jerky Direct has only been open to the public for a little over a year. At only $12 a month to stay active which includes 2 bags of jerky shipped to your door. My downline is growing fast after being in the business for only a short time. Take a minute and please check out mlm marketing
