Peter Brantley, the new Director of the Digital Library Federation writes about the library digitization initiatives with Google:
We poisoned our hand before we played it. We were approached singly, charmed in confidence, the stranger was beguiling, and we embraced. For the love of selfish confidence, we spoke neither our fortune nor our misgivings with our neighbors or our friends. We felt special, invited to loud weddings on far away islands of adventure; in the quiet we may wonder if we were given broken jewelry. [shimenawa – Google and the books]
