Free Excerpt of The Google Story by David Bias

Free excerpt from the book (about space race, biotech, etc.)

I am sure NickW will love this bit:

"Why not improve the brain?" Brin asked. "You would want a lot of compute power. Perhaps in the future, we can attach a little version of Google that you just plug into your brain. We'll have to develop stylish versions, but then you'd have all of the world's knowledge immediately available, which is pretty exciting."

I saw a 'Stargate' episode on the Sci Fi channel with this very concept a couple of nights ago. You had this little "link" that stuck to your forehead and you'd have all the information in the world you could ever want directly into your brain.

Of course in the show, "the link" was evil and erased your memory and told you what to do and you'd just blindly do it. Hmm...
