World Wind

Craig Newmark links to the NASA World Wind program, a program that allows you to zero in on places throughout the world via pictures taken from satellites. It's a huge program (half a gig), and some of the photos are outdated (I can zero in on my neighborhood but I can't see my house because, in the picture, my neighborhood is still a farm field). But it looks like a great procrastination tool. I even think my durables will get a kick out of it.
