This blog post about the Google Book Search Project really caught my eye because of the photo and the talk of Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson, who signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776, was a revolutionary and a forward thinker. What image do you now have of Google when they connect this historic figure to their project? Does Google seem more benevolent? More revolutionary (in a good way)? More American? Is there a subliminal message here or am I reading too much into this?
Perhaps you should read the blog post, written by Google Book Search in celebration of the University of Virginia joining their project, and decide for yourself.
