This week Jonathan talks about the recent documentary on Al Jazeera America entitled Google and the World Brain, which was a review of the legal battle between Google's interest in scanning every book in the world for public consumption against the publishers and authors who own the rights to the books.

Semantic, Hacker, and Social Media news are also covered along with an apology from Jonathan regarding some annoying things he did on Twitter recently.
