Cultural stupidism

Or you could try to write things people want to read (via PSFK).

Already at the pointy end of French court decisions favoring French firms that sued Google, the dominant search engine now faces French accusations that its plan to digitize the contents of major libraries constitutes an act of "crushing domination" over non-Anglo-Saxon culture.

He called on the E.U. to start its own competitive effort.
