Google Brings Magazines To The Web

Just last month, Google announced that it was bring­ing the mas­sive LIFE Mag­a­zine pho­to archive online. Two mil­lion pho­tos are already uploaded, and anoth­er 8 mil­lion will be com­ing online soon.

This week, they’ve made a new announce­ment. The upshot? Google has reached an agree­ment with mag­a­zine pub­lish­ers to dig­i­tize their his­tor­i­cal archives. This will bring mil­lions of arti­cles to the web, and you’ll be able to access them through Google Book Search. Old media keeps com­ing over to new media.

Among the titles, you’ll find New York Mag­a­zine, Pop­u­lar Sci­ence, Pop­u­lar Mechan­ics, Moth­er Jones, Run­ners World, Ebony, Men’s Health, Veg­e­tar­i­an Times and more.

PS Google has also post­ed the top search terms of 2008. It’s a win­dow into the Zeit­geist. Have a look.
