Google drops newspaper digitalization project
Google is dropping plans to digitize the world's newspaper archives. The company says it's going to use its resources elsewhere. The good thing, for those of us who use newspaper archives, is that there are a lot of other places to go. Sure, I'd like to see more digitized archives, but I'm not all that sure that having one company control them is the best way to make the past available.
