Twitter and Plazes

I've been "Twittering" now for a week or so, and am liking it's simplicity. I'm finding it useful for Civil and GIS stuff as well as breaking news and the Brilliant Stephen Fry. Although some of the posts appear a little pointless, I like that too!!

I was looking for an app that would georeference my twittering. I found one for the symbian system, one for the i-phone and one for windows mobile that I couldn't get to work in the 5 nano-seconds patience allowed tonight.

Before I had a little (cyber) paddy, I thought I better just check Plazes, my favoured locator at the moment, and yep, they came up trumps again. No effort required, no software needed, no problem. Job done!

After devolving myself, I decided that it would be better to devolve Boris instead!!

Google Earth V5.0

Ah, the new GE again. 

I've had some hardware issues (and still have!!) so haven't looked into this in any detail at all yet. First job when you update yours, is to check out the sea. It is brilliant, and you can dive beneath the water too! Very nice.

Everytime I look at Google Earth, it gets a little closer to the vision I presented right at the begining (see earier blogs on Google Earth).

Still had poor data though!!!

I am now Twittering! https://twitter.com/ Civil3DUK. I am not totaly sure of it's value, or even it's point yet, but will be persisting on this until I can decide either of the above.
