John Battelle: Google and AOL Lame or are Telling Porkie Lies

In Case you missed it Google “clarified” some of the issues about the AOL partnership on their blog. Now John Battelle wonders if there isn’t a bit of “interpretation” going on

 John Battelle’s Searchblog: Google Clarifies

I know that AOL has been a bit bipolar about whether content is on or off the open web. But….this strikes me as kerfluffle. There’s something else going on. If there’s not, well, OK then. Then AOL is deeply, deeply lame. And, honestly, so is Google, because it seems to me that before you decide to go scan every book in the world, you might drop a dime to your most important partner, and ask if you can help them index their content as well.
