GOOGLE BOOKS INITIATIVE

Kavan Ratnatunga writes: "I knew this was coming but
didn't know it was online.  I didn't find it referenced
at coinbooks.org so I am submitting it."

[Kavan is referring to the Google book search initiative.
We have discussed this, but Kavan forwarded the project's
vision statement, which I'm not sure we've touched on.
-Editor]

"In May 1961, JFK said that he was going to put a man
on the moon. The idea was unthinkable at the time, but
within the decade, the goal was achieved.

Google Book Search (books.google.com) is our man on the
moon initiative.  We see a world where all books are online
and searchable*. How exactly will this be done? How long
exactly will it take? We aren't sure, but we're committed
to making it happen."
