Google Aims to Make Internet Sentient

Well, actually, they just want all human knowledge, including the human genome, to be searchable. Pretty soon, Google will read your mind and give you search results on any question that enters your head, from "Who sang that song?" to "I wonder whatever happened to that person from college?" to "What should I have for dinner?"

It's kind of scary, really. It's incredible to think that anyone in the world could have access to all human knowledge, in any language, with the click of a mouse. We're not quite there yet, but technological innovation is moving much faster than legal innovation. And the law is the only thing that could stand in Google's way at this point. Google may very well take over the world. (Narf!)
