You may have noticed, gentle reader, that the posts are coming hot and furious now. That’s because I’m determined to plow through the last of these Learning 2.0 lessons before the September 25th deadline.
After I found my house with Google Maps–and finished screaming (the gubmint knows where I live!)–I checked out some of the mashups. I was amused by the Where’s George map? (who knew currency traveled so far?) and intrigued by the Pisco map (plotting coastal ecosystems in California).
The coolest map I found was this one of Mars located through Google Labs. Is that awesome or what? If you click on the “Stories” feature, you can also check out detailed information on some of the places like these lava channels.
In terms of beta applications, I was most intrigued by Google Scholar. Can’t say that I was really impressed by Google Base.
