Going Sailing!

Just an FYI that I’ll be doing some sailing next week and so GEB may have fewer posts and slower reaction times to news that comes out during the week (although, watch my Monday post as I should be announcing a Google Earth plugin application someone has planned for release). But, I should have some cool photos and GPS tracks to share in a Google Earth file here and at the Tahina Expedition web site (Tahina is our boat).
And, just to avoid having no news today, I noticed the Google Street View Trike has been spotted taking photos on the grounds of UPenn. A Googler confirmed it was theirs, and that they have also taken photos at San Diego State and University of San Diego, and are working with other campuses interested in a different look at their campus via Street View.
