After all the hardware problems here at fotopages, I've finally decided to give up and create a dedicated site for my photography. Drop by and tell me what you think!

Althought I'm guessing that it will remain here for a while, please note that I will no longer be updating this page.

What, no new pics?

I've been trying to update this thing for days now but image uploads have been disabled. I'll post some new pictures just as soon Fotopages has everything up and running again...

Google Maps

This, together with podcasting, has to be the best thing that's happened to the internet in years. The basic idea is that you can google a city and view it as either a map or as a satellite image. From there, you can zoom down to the point where you can make out individual streets and (in the satellite view) even particular houses. Cool stuff.

But wait, there's more! If you live in the States, you can then type another term into the search engine and find all the companies with that name/product on the map. Some entries even allow you to get street directions. I tested it out by searching for "New York" and then "Sushi", giving me a listing and map of all the sushi places around town. Later, I tried "Las Vegas" and "Guns" with similar results.

Another cool thing you can do is become a virtual tourist and make your way around the world visiting major landmarks. You can clearly make out the Pyramids just outside of Cairo, the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Colloseum and the Trevi Fountain in Rome, the Grand Canyon and even the building you are surfing from (although the really high-resolution images seem to be limited to the US, Japan, Europe and some Australian cities for the time being).
