Just a note for those who may have heard the big noise on a
lot of business reports today about Google books but may not have been aroundas long as some of us.
Im not talking about reporting on the big event, which is
legitimate. No, I am listening to a big business/technology radio service and
every few minutes they headline technology news with the report that Google isnow offering some old books.
Yes, Google is allowing people to download and print copies
of old books only about 15 years after Project Gutenberg began the sameservice.
http://gutenberg.com has about 75,000 free books and ebooks online, check them out.
It just goes to show that you need to be very careful where
you get your technology news some sources are providing little buttechnology olds and lack all understanding of the Internet.
