I had a grand old time over the weekend playing with Google Earth. In their words:
Google Earth streams the world over wired and wireless networks enabling users to virtually go anywhere on the planet and see places in photographic detail. This is not like any map you have ever seen. This is a 3D model of the real world, based on real satellite images combined with maps, guides to restaurants, hotels, entertainment, businesses and more. You can zoom from space to street level instantly and then pan or jump from place to place, city to city, even country to country.
It is really quite remarkable and well worth a look. If ego-surfing is looking for results about yourself in a search engine such as Google, what do you call it when you are looking up places you have been on Google Earth – ego-tourism?
I have also been trying out flickr for photo manipulation and sharing. This should let people have easier and better access to thumbnails and full size photos. As well as making it easier for me to post.
