Google and the World Brain

 7:36 pm on Feb 18, 2013 (gmt 0)

Tonight's Storyville at 22.00 UK time for anyone who is interested.

Storyville: Documentary which tells the story of the most ambitious project ever conceived on the internet and the people who tried to stop it. In 1937 HG Wells predicted the creation of the 'world brain', a giant global library that contained all human knowledge which would lead to a new form of higher intelligence. 70 years later the realisation of that dream was under way, as Google scanned millions of books for its Google Books website. However, over half those books were still in copyright and authors across the world launched a campaign to stop them, climaxing in a New York courtroom in 2011.

This is a film about the dreams, dilemmas and dangers of the internet, set in spectacular locations in China, USA, Europe and Latin America.

It's hard to keep up with all the litigation and ignoring of copyright law, but I might still give it a watch out of interest.
