Shawn and I have been discussing/debating the future of Google and it's impact. The genesis of this discussion is a class that she's taking in her Library Sciences studies on Google. Today she passed along to me a film presented as a history of the decline of the Fourth Estate by a Museum of Media History. The film is set in 2014. It's a flash file and runs about 8 minutes long. An interesting concept and not far off from my perspective of Google, though I find the blaming of Google, Amazon, and Microsoft for the destruction of journalism to be a bit alarmist.
