Siva Vaidhyanathan is presenting at the Digital Literacy Centre on Monday October 5th. The event is co-sponsored by CCFI and the DLC. The title of his talk is The Googlization of Everything.

The following is a quote from his blog:

This blog, the result of a collaboration between myself and the Institute for the Future of the Book, is dedicated to exploring the process of writing a critical interpretation of the actions and intentions behind the cultural behemoth that is Google, Inc. The book will answer three key questions: What does the world look like through the lens of Google?; How is Google’s ubiquity affecting the production and dissemination of knowledge?; and how has the corporation altered the rules and practices that govern other companies, institutions, and states?
