Oh Lord, please don't let Google Book Search be Misunderstood - Teleread

Be like a cat. Don't fight. Take a nap.
Panzer was just tootling around in the Catosphere minding his own kitty business when the Panzermobile got buffeted by all kinds of noise. Following the cacophony took our brave traveling kitty boy to the Teleread site. There he found a post about Google Book Search.

According to the post by Chris Meadows, the brouhaha about Google Book Search is heating up again. Panzer told you about a post at Backchannel by Scott Rosenberg about Google Book Search having gotten "lost" in the decade it was embroiled in a court action, but that it's still scanning books. It appears Mr. Rosenberg's post got bloggers posting their rebuttals and opinions to his post. Mr. Meadows posts that all Google Book Search is is an "indexing tool for a search engine." The post contains links to other posts involved in the back and forth postings.

Panzer says, "This kitty will never understand humans. The court decided over a year ago ... So ... Non of it doesn't matters anymore."

Note: This is a h-u-m-o-n-g-o-u-s post with links to other posts. Bring a thermos of tea and a half dozen muffins. If you plan to follow the links to other posts, bring a second thermos of tea and another half dozen muffins and a sleeping bag for a nap.
