Google the Mountain View, California 800lb gorilla has moved into yet another venture, worldwide literacy.

In partnership with UNESCO they have launched a new web site www.google.com/literacy which is a to become a hub for worldwide literacy projects.

A Google spokesman stated that organizations from around the world have pledged support to this project and will be contributing content.

Good luck to Google on this project, it certainly is one that is needed. Considering the wealth of North America the literacy problems here are significant, and every little bit helps.
