Online mapping options (normally powered by Google Maps) continue to amaze me and I just found another fun example on ubasics.com. As a child my dad always said that if I dug a hole in our yard I would eventually reach Australia. It seems he was wrong. Take a look at this simple but entertaining use of Google Maps to see the other side of the world from any starting place. It seems the opposite of my home town (Harlow, Essex) is South-East of New Zealand. If I had followed my dad's advice I would have got very wet! To see the opposite side of the world from any starting place click here or click on the map image above. Enjoy :)
As regular readers know, we post a lot of fun posts on this blog, so a video from the Colbert Report won't stand out. But this one is different. Not only is it, as you would expect, funny, but it also makes a point we have been making for a while; your Digital Identity is important. Google's own Eric Schmidt, as part of the promotion tour around his new book "The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business" states:
"your digital identity will live forever because there's no delete button."In the book Schmidt also makes several other comments that make our point; that you need to start telling a detailed, accurate and effective version of your story on line today. Follr is where to start telling that story. As you think about it we hope you enjoy this video :)
