Bad news for lexicographical antedating from the Boston Phoenix:

"Google abandons master-plan to archive the world's newspapers"

"In an email today to publishers including the Boston Phoenix, Google told partners in its News Archive project that it would cease accepting, scanning, and indexing microfilm and other archival material from newspapers, and was instead focusing its energies on 'newer projects that help the industry, such as Google One Pass, a platform that enables publishers to sell content and subscriptions directly from their own sites.'"
