Hmm, it's going around the blogosphere that Google fired a blogger.

I don't know if this is true. Can anyone confirm?

You've seen podcasts. You've seen vcasts. Eileen Brown is creating an entirely new category all by herself: BlogCasts. These are short tips captured from her screen.

Today's BlogCast? Talking about the deployment tools available for Exchange 2003.

Google Maps is really awesome. I've been playing with it for a while and it's a lot of fun to play with.

So, where are maps going in the future?

Check out the last part of my tour of Microsoft Research. I just put the video up. In the first part of this video they show off a really cool app (SmartPhlow) which shows traffic conditions in the Seattle area. If there's a clog on a freeway it'll even predict how long it'll take before that clog clears.

Here's a similar thing for Alameda County (the freeways near Oakland International Airport). What's fun about that map is that there's a Winnov video box running Windows so you can actually look at live traffic cams so you can get a visual guide of the traffic conditions as well. Each box has four video capture cards in it so can look in four directions. Unfortunately the technology is all out of date already so takes a while to load.

My dream is to have some sort of map system that's combined with a photo sharing and blogging capability and a joining of any traffic data like these two examples show.

Oh, I'm in Santa Clara right now, and don't have a printer. Can anyone do a test of all the various mapping services and see which one makes the easiest-to-read printouts?
