Where am I now?

As you can see, this blog hasn't gotten any love in many years... But you can now find me on my site jessicatravels.com.

Google Earth

Omigod, this is the coolest freaking thing... I heard a reference to it while listening to NPR a few minutes ago, went to the website, downloaded it, and have been playing ever since. I swear, these Google people are amazing. The part that nearly made my eyes bug out was when I typed in my work address and saw my car in the picture. It's not in the same place it's in right now, so I don't know how old the picture is, but still. That could be creepy or really, really cool - depending on your level of paranoia.

i love this! the only thing is i don't think my video card is good enough to get the resolution at less than 3000 ft or so. i can't see my car near my apartment. but being able to just find restaurants near a friend's address, or mine for that matter, or a bar or bike shop, that's pretty slick. and the directions are much better than seeing them on mapquest!!

Chris & I did an experiment - we scrolled from our house to the newly built mall near the highway - and it's still a dirt lot in the picture. So, the photos are a bit older than I thought they were... But still! Very high on the cool factor!
