This is cool. You upload an image and then MapLib lets you put a Google Map interface on it. Imagine a Google Map on top of a Ski Resort. Or any photo.
Or, say I have a blueprint or photo of our Seagate CES BlogHaus. I could put little pushpins on top of it. Like this test image has done.

I loved this post by Mike over on TechDirt where he details how Tim Berners-Lee corrected a Guardian article that quoted him. All on his blog.
Don’t know who Tim is and why he’s important to the little words you’re reading right now? You might want to learn how to use Wikipedia.
He invented the Web.
Ethan Kaplan does. He complains about spending $3,500 to attend a conference without being able to get good Wifi.
Damn dude. If you can afford $3,500 for a conference then spend $80 a month on Verizon Wireless like I do. You won’t care anymore about conference Wifi. My Verizon wireless worked just fine the whole conference.
So, what should we care about? Access to power outlets! 🙂
