Additional References re Google

Hi all,
As promised here are several papers which refer to Google, relevant I thought in the context of our recent discussion:

Googling for a diagnosis—use of Google as a diagnostic aid: internet based study BMJ 2006;333:1143-1145 (2 December), doi:10.1136/bmj.39003.640567.AE (published 10 November 2006)
PubMed citation:

"I'll Google that" in AORN Journal, vol. 86, Iss. 6, 2007, p. 933-5 written by Lois Hamlin, Senior Lecturer, Facility of nursing, Midwifery & Health, at University of Technology, Sydney.

And more recently, a report I came across today:
