Ah - happens to all of us. As an aside, it sure is easy to be cranky when
one is an IA, isn't it? :)

While I definetly agree that Google is sort of forgetting the "hand that
feeds them," at least they weren't too overt in doing so.
As a side note, I think what Google is doing is right up my alley because
I've always believe the point of technology is to free up human time for
what we *want* to do (which isn't always muddling with details like editing
and compiling news sources).
Regardless of opposing viewpoints, thanks for the thought provocation -
always a good thing. :)
