Tech Policy Seminar

Both Sarah and I are going to be blogging and commenting at Professor Picker’s Antitrust & Intellectual Property seminar blog (called, for some reason, the Tech Policy Seminar blog) this quarter. The current topic of discussion is Jean-Noël Jeanneney‘s Google and the Myth of Universal Knowledge, translated from the French Quand Google défie l’Europe: Plaidoyer pour un sursaut (“When Google Challenges Europe: A Wake-Up Call”) by Teresa Lavender Fagan. This paranoid little work of eighty-nine pages from the now-former president of the French Bibliothèque Nationale was written less as a “wake-up call” to Europeans than as an assertion of the importance of Europe in the face of its declining influence on the world. Nonetheless, the blog features some interesting discussion.
