I can see my house from here!

If you haven't seen Google Maps, you should check it out. Google has been steadily rolling out impressive product after product, the result, I think, of simply putting together a well-funded army of geeks. I'm eager to see them soundly whip Microsoft if an impending search-engine war flares up, which I would eulogize as the victory of graceful intelligence against the brute force of capital. But I'm digressing rapidly into a pseudo-Marxist rant. What I meant to point out is the "satellite" feature on Google Maps, which lets you zoom in on satellite pictures (ca. April 2003, as far as we can deduce) anywhere in the world. Hours of entertainment.
