Google is a corporate but they make it difficult for even indie companies, like sky media, to hate them. Here's why.
Inside Google Book Search was launched on Monday and that's exactly the sort of blog, we'd like to see some more of. This blog you're currently reading has more or less the same aim as the new Google blog: to put our experience and knowledge in the hand of others so that they too can perform what we are doing.
Obviously, Inside Google Book Search, won't tell you anything about how Google Book works – and really, who cares – but it vows to announce discoveries of terrific books, that are on its servers as well as thoughts shared by the team.
On that note, we're excited to announce Inside Google Book Search, the official Google Book Search blog. This blog is about discovery — yours and ours. Here you'll find members of our team sharing thoughts, tips and the occasional announcement about Book Search. We intend for this to be a place not only for Book Search enthusiasts, but also book lovers of every stripe. We'll be highlighting cool books we've found, discoveries you've made, big thoughts about the future of book search and more.
The big thing about Google is that it knows exactly what the "customers" want and that's what it gives you. And man, they seem so friendly that you do forget that they're a big money-making business. So how can you hate them, then? I ask.
