Wow - Open Media Network
The Open Media Network
looks really exciting. Not having good TV reception / cable / DSS, whatever we watch we either have on disk or download. This looks like a great place not only for educational and news items to watch but also a nice way to collect podcasts. It uses its own form of a peer network, much like BitTorrent. I hope this builds speed and content.
Sedona Airport Elisa and I hiked around
This is an overhead of the Sedona Airport
that Elisa and I hiked around. The hike was initially on the east side and I didn't see the airport until you came around the southernmost loop. You can see a dense set of vegetation to the east of the end of the airstrip - there's a fence there protecting some very lush trees. That's about the only place you can see the trail from above.
Sat maps showing interesting things
At Google Sightseeing there are a collection of snaps from Google Maps of famous and strange things seen from overhead. Fun! Ends up that Google Maps is a lot more accessible than Microsoft's Terraserver if only in user interface (quicker to enter addresses). TerraServer servers up much bigger images.
