I get the same 'your network is infected' warning after only a small amount of searching / browsing.

I was very much hoping that google would introduce a keyword – much like the 'playable:true' option we have with Google Video – that would return only results where full texts are available. (I keep trying things like 'copyright:false' but to no avail =)).

the [copyright:false] idea is really nesacsary. i want to be to search through those books when i want a good read.

do you think google will also join the open content alliance?

I think Google is getting a beating somehow. Maybe that explains the outage?

Have you tried with a US proxy? Daisy Miller comes in the period that is only not copyright in the US, not the entire world. I'm in Australia, and have the same problem (but haven't tried a US proxy).

Yeah, I did try a US proxy... no results still.

That's cool Hanan! Yes, I provided 1 or 2 hacks for Google Hacks (2nd edition), and 2 for Yahoo Hacks.

As for Google making available O'Reilly books in their entirety (showing full browsable pages instead of just snippets), I suppose O'Reilly is part of the Google Print Publisher Program print.google.com/intl/en/googl ...

But why isn't there a direct link to buy the book? The only link to O'Reilly goes to OReilly.com via a logo. Shouldn't there be a "buy this book" somewhere, if only out of fairness to O'Reilly so their book gets bought (it would also help the Google Print user, of course)?

Does GP has an API? If it does, here's a new website idea for you, Philipp. Enter a name and see how many results you get. Store the names and numbers of results and see how your name ranks.

From my bookmarks:

Dave Winer – 0
Robert Scoble – 7
David Winer – 9
Jason Kottke – 11
Jorn Barger – 22
Doc Searls – 51
David Weinberger – 167
Jeffrey Zeldman – 478
Rafe Colburn – 558
Andrew Brown – 2600

Well, if there's no API you can always screen-scrape :)

Now how do I get this list of bloggers? I could then program it :)
