Article (op-ed): A Library to Last Forever by Google's Sergey Brin

To me, what makes this op-ed (opinion-editorial) piece by Sergey Brin interesting is the comments (and there are 90 of them). Commenters both support Brin's arguments and take exception to them. As for Brin's words, there are likely many parts that would make an interesting excerpt, but I picked this one:
But despite a number of important digitization efforts to date (Google has even helped fund others, including some by the Library of Congress), none have been at a comparable scale, simply because no one else has chosen to invest the requisite resources. At least one such service will have to exist if there are ever to be one hundred.
And your reaction?
