Not related but worth watching: Michael Moore's Sicko (removed from Google Video but available as Google Player file through this post).

Update: some more interesting titbits @NYT @GoogleBlog on the Google Sicko story.

The developing story on this Google Health blog post is very interesting and gives some clues about what happens when the question is on the medium itself...what if Google were to take out all news on this story, or calls Digg to bury the story in their listing, or removes all search results to related types of queries...interesting stuff, like the ongoing comments over at this Google Blogoscoped post show.

Btw, I can imagine living in France is a blesh when it comes to healthcare, but striking the living daylights out of your own economy doesn't do anybody good...guess as always its a more complicated story than can be said in an enjoyable documentary (how he gets Guantanamo in there is just a great piece of dramatic storytelling).
