As many of you know, I’m in the final stages of preparing for a five year sailing circumnavigation called the Tahina Expedition. You will of course be able to follow my wife and I, on every stage of the trip, with Google Earth. We plan to leave at the end of the Atlantic hurricane season (in just a few weeks). At that point, it won’t be practical for me to devote full time to the Google Earth Blog (GEB), so I’ve recruited someone to help insure the same quality of news and interesting content involving Google Earth keeps coming here to the GEB.
I’ve asked Mickey Mellen to join the GEB team and help with the writing. Mickey has been heavily involved in Google Earth since the day it was released, having launched Google Earth Hacks back in June 2005. In addition, he and I have worked together on a handful of projects, such as EarthSwoop. Mickey has a strong interest in Internet technologies and geo-spatial technologies in particular.
I still plan to continue posting to GEB as time allows, but it won’t be on a daily basis. Over the next month or so, I’ll be gradually transitioning the blog over to Mickey. If you have any Google Earth related news to share, you can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join me in welcoming Mickey to the team, and be sure to follow my sailing adventures on the Tahina Expedition Blog.
