Street View is now in Albuquerque

April 21st, 2008 No comments

I’m quite impressed with the amount of data that Google has collected by camera mounted cars driving through all the streets across the nation.  Albuquerque in particular has been covered quite well – in fact, you can get a perfect view of my house as good as if you had driven by yourself.  For those of you that know my address – just enter it into http://maps.google.com/ and click on street view and there ya go — that’s my house :)

Just to show an example – so you can play around with it – here is the street view of the chapel that we attend church at:

Quite impressive both in the amount of data they have collected (both satellite, and now street view) as well as the seamless way they present it to the end user.  I’m sure there are privacy concerns from many – regardless – this is quite an amazing piece of work that Google has done, and continues to do.

You can even see the car that the pictures were taken from:

Neat stuff!

I am testing a new feature called Jott. I can call my cellphone and have it automatically post a message to my blog from my voice. Anyhow, this is the first test. We will see if it works. listen

Migration…

April 17th, 2008 No comments

So – I’ve finally migrated over to an actual server that is not located in my own home.  Don’t get me wrong – I still have the old server at my home, but I’m hosting on an external server now, in hopes that it’ll free up more time.  Time will tell – if I actually do free up some time, I suppose that means I might have time to blog some more – which is something I’d like to do… cross your fingers :)
