Google and the World Brain

I watched this doco with interest on ABC1 last night.  It is available on ABC iview if anyone wishes to take a look.

Google And The World Brain radically questions the nature of the Internet. The film uses Google Books as a prism through which issues of data-mining, copyright, freedom and surveillance are illuminated.

I particularly like this quote from one of the interviewees -

"A book is not an extra-long tweet".
