Commentary by Stephen Downes

You can now search Google Books, and the masters behind the search engine have done it right. Pointing to this resource, Aaron Swartz offers a sample search. Clicking on the search brought me (surprisingly) a useful result, this Perl text from O'Reilly, Perl Template Toolkit. Expecting only to find a title and a plug to purchase the book (that is, useless results) I found myself looking at a full page and three more pages in either direction - usually more than enough to give me the information I need. The book, I might add, is a work that has never ever graced a bookstore here in Moncton (and probably never will, given Chapters's new policy of not stocking books).CRLF
