Via Slashdot. BusinessWeek has a nice write up on how Google is poised to organize the globe. What the article makes clear is that a company whose mission is "to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful" has a lot of work on its hands.

Describing the eclectic mix of Google services, the article describes the company as:
