David Carr has written an interesting article entitled “The Evolving Mission of Google” in the Media & Advertising section of The New York Times, looking at how Google, according to its executives, at least, is not a media company: Google organizes and manages content, but it stays away from producing it.  Hmmmm.  It seems that that is not what those outside of Google think.  A look at how Google is evolving into a media company, perhaps…
