Today is the day of a long awaited event in San Francisco, with repercussions for Google Earth users around the globe. How do I know? My professors are not in their office. They’re off hobnobbing in California. Marine scientists are gathering at California Academy of Sciences for the launch of what folks are calling “Google Ocean”. The Guardian UK reports the media launch in today’s news.
According to the Guardian, there’s even a new plug-in coming that combines Google Earth and Wii Fit into a new interface called “Earth Surfer”. Are you ready to catch the wave? Frank Taylor, who catalogs the development of Google Earth at gearthblog.com, says
“I don’t think this announcement will be confined to just Google Ocean, …. When Google makes an announcement like this, they always try to push the envelope on multiple fronts. And, with Al Gore headlining the event, I’m sure we’re going to get some data about the environment.”
Insiders are telling Deep Sea News “watch NBC Nightly News tonight.” We obviously don’t pay them enough. Pictures! We want pictures!!
