Where's Waldo?

Do you think Google Earth is cool, or a tool for peeping toms? Might as well have some fun with it, right? From NPR, 22-year-old artist Melanie Coles recently made a 2,300-square-foot Waldo and put him on a roof in Vancouver. Now she's waiting for Google Earth satellites to pick him up.

On a related note, I've had a recent interest in maps and atlases. I stumbled upon Fresh Logic Atlas the other day, and I'm impressed. It's web based (no software to download), and it includes road, aerial and hybrid maps. Maybe I'll finally make up for all those 9th grade geography classes I slept through.
