From Timo Hannay, of Nature Publishing Group …

So while Google has to mature, it is publishers and politicians who still have the most to do. They must adapt their businesses and laws to work in a new, unfamiliar land edging into view on the horizon, a place that our children are already colonising. This is a world in which our abilities to find, reinvent and share are being set free from the limits of the physical world. The future is a foreign country; they do things differently there.

From the Googledebate run by EPS. A focus on how Google is impacting the publishing industry with invited contributions from sundry parties. Surprised not to have seen more mention of it.
