Google Earth

Holy GOD Google Earth is awesome. It’s like what I imagined The Mysterious Future would be like as a kid. It’s built on top of Keyhole. The nice thing about it is that you can share links to places. So, for example, if you have Google Earth installed, you can just click on the links to see:

If you have nothing to do for the rest of the day — or even if you do — go check it out. Seriously.

PS. You might have to save the .kmz files to your desktop, then double-click and open with Google Earth — it’s not quite as point-and-click as it could (and hopefully will) be soon.
