  1. Related: I've always considered interesting the idea of using the zoom event on a embedded map widget to alter the webpage around it, thus using the zoom control to alter both subject and context. I'm probably been unintelligible here. I mean for example, if you have the canonical GMaps widget on a webpage, and you zoom in, capturing the zoom event on the widget and changing both the map *and* the page contents, so the content reflects how local/global your interests are (i.e., roughly mapping zoom to scope of interest) Of course, subtler applications of the general idea could/should be pursued. I've been thinking about that for a long time, but I don't remember seeing any example. Glad I let it off my system, although I sincerely doubt I've communicated well what I mean. My english seems specially fuzzy today :D

  2. There is also some great nighttime streetview camera glitches going on on the north side of San Jose avenue right around the 1406 on the map. Interestingly beautiful stuff and probably made it past the edit stage only because the southside of of the street is captured properly in daylight.
