digiday:DAILY - If I Ran The Google

Kudos to Kenny McDougal and Ken Horowitz for the poem "If I Ran The Google."

Here's an excerpt:

With Google Books fixed, I could say “This is groovy,”
Then move on the way, to start scanning a movie?

The studios would squawk, as all Googlers should know,
This time ask permission ere you enter the show.
But lots of films out there are orphans, you know,
Abandoned by owners whom nobody knows.

They’re sitting in archives, these stories on reels,
Preserved for the future, but making no deals.
Jon Stewart made fun, on his show, of the archives[ii],
Dissing good folks making sure film survives.
