Does Google Deserve A Nobel Prize For Literature?
"Is Google literature? As a search engine, of course, it lacks a conventional narrative. But a traditional bildungsroman would hardly suit our era. Not even James Joyce could capture the fractured nature of 21st-century life, let alone the nearly unlimited interconnectedness among people and events these days. Google can, and it does so as a matter of course, tracking the entire world's culture as it shifts and evolves, cataloging the news of the day, sifting it all for relevance, and preserving it for posterity."
