For the Dutch speakers among you — Bright, a very hip paper magazine and website that perhaps best corresponds to a Dutch version of Wired, has a long feature article by David Lemereis on “The revolution of Google Earth”. There is also an additional how-to blog post with precise instructions and copious links.
This is easily the best big-picture article I’ve read to date about why Google Earth constitutes a sea change in how we can navigate information. And I don’t just think this because David interviewed me for the article :-) (in beleaguered Dutch — my tech vocab is resolutely in English). David “gets it”, but he also articulates why.
