  • How big is the Deepwater Horizon oil spill? Gulf Coast oil spill map vs urban areas by Paul Rademacher
  • Fascinating article by/about Google Earth's Michael Jones. Choice quotes: "The future is not a better Google Earth but a smaller Google Earth." "The new application we are working on is called the Star Finder. It will map all the star locations." "In the future all you will have to do is point you phone at something and get information about it. That is the immediate future and we are working on that."
