The other night we watched Motorcycle Diaries. No matter what you think about Che Guevara, you have to love the fact that he pretty much has his own registered logo:

So.....I decided to make my own...The caption to the Che image reads "Up to the victory always," roughly.

Mine reads, "Up to the Quite Rude always."

"Quite Rude" was as close as I could come to Fairly Crass....

Maybe I should start making T-Shirts with this design....

So Google is going to scan over 1,000,000 books, mostly out-of-print, from the libraries of Harvard, Oxford, and the New York Public Library, etc., and make them available online. I think this is going to be a simple, image scan thing, not a fully searchable, tagged, encoded, and whatever else-database, like the Whitman Archive, on which my brother-in-law works (which, by the way, is pretty awesome - Whitman sure tried hard! - check out the poems where virtually the entire poem has been crossed out and replaced, word by word - guess he didn't own pencils with erasers). But, how cool will it be to have all those ancient books right there, available to just about anyone, for free..?

I'm a Google fan.

Rather geeky

Especially the fact that this person assembled not 1, but 4 of these...
