It's creepy. It's a goody basket for the stalkers I don't- but one day might- have. I don't like it. (Unless, of course, I'm socially stalking someone else with the very same cyber tools. ha.) But then I watch the same technology give my children something I never had growing up- a vivid, fascinating and educational resource that lets them travel the world in which they live from my home computer. Not depicted "as it might be" but "as it IS." Google Earth (once dubbed Google Dirt) has unveiled their newest incarnation and it comes complete with a feature called Google Ocean that blows me away. After having successfully mapped most of the planet's "dirt" features, their team was challenged to take on the 2/3 of the world that is covered by water. So they teamed with over 100 of the world's top scientific and marine-oriented organizations (even surf clubs) to do just that. The result? Jaw-dropping. Absolutely jaw-dropping. It was unveiled today. Go see it. Also check out the link I've added for the Google LatLong site to find out about more new features....

When I read that ol' Huck had earned a spot at number four on the ALA's list of most frequently challenged books for 2007 I could only think that Twain would be pleased. The criticism: that Twain, while anti-slavery, still reflects the prejudice of the times in his characterization of Jim and his use of the word "nigger". The book was banned immediately upon it's printing in 1884 for being 'crude.' This link is to the first UK printing- digitized from the collection of the Bodleian.

It is well integrated, fully featured, and thoroughly documented in plain English. I use Yahoo for my default garbage collector, etc. but am switching to GMail for personal and private use. GMail offers free Outlook POP3 integration ($20/year on Yahoo) and increased space (8 MB compared to 2 MB) and features online archiving so you don't need to worry about maintaing a large archive on your PC. Additionally Google's product integration with all of their other gadgets and applications provides for the best home page and desktop integration.
