Huge digitization project planned in Europe

Two news stories caught my eye this morning.

The first being the huge digization project planned in Europe. "At least six million books, documents and other cultural works will be made available online through a European Digital Library over the next five years. The European Commission plans to fund a series of 'digitisation centres' across Europe and create a framework for protecting, accessing and using intellectual property rights in digital libraries."

The second story that got my attention is Microsoft's claim that in 6 months they will have a search engine that will be more relevant to US users than Google . This should be interesting to watch.........
