According to a story by Oliver Luft in Journalism.co.uk, the editor of Times Online today told the Society of Editors conference in the UK that Google was "hugely dangerous" to the newspaper industry. Responding to a question from the floor during a Q&A session, Anne Spackman told delegates, "We absolutely can't afford not to be brilliant on Google News. I think Google is hugely dangerous." If you parse through her double negative, I think she said that Times Online needs to be brilliant on Google News. And, as we all know, brilliant means "wicked smart."
