Doctorow on Google Book Search and Google Video  
Cory Doctorow has two long but excellent posts on BoingBoing. One is full of praise for Google Book Search, with Cory arguing that, as a writer, he loves the idea of more people being exposed to his work, and pointing out that his books are selling well even though readers can download them for free. The second is much more critical, and asks what's wrong with Google Video's DRM? Cory says Google Video is the first instance of Google releasing a product that isn't completely focused on the user's needs.
