Those Google Earth Bloggers, They Get Around

Google Earth bloggers are on the move: Stefan Geens (Ogle Earth), lately a resident of Cairo, is relocating to Shanghai; Frank Taylor (Google Earth Blog) is preparing for a five-year trip around the world by sailboat with his wife. Stefan is shifting his focus to “the geopolitical implications of all this neogeography — censorship attempts by governments, citizen activism, humanitarian and disaster relief, science outreach, and of course mainstream media failing to report all this accurately.” Frank has snagged Google as a sponsor and will be using Google Earth throughout the trip; here’s the Web site.
