In case you hadn’t noticed the attractive boldface box over here on the right, there’s a new feature here at Surf.Bird.Scribble. In an endless quest to make it easier for you to read news while avoiding work, I’ve linked all previous Scribblings to their geographic locations in Google Earth.
You can quickly view the result in Google Maps – especially useful if you have a slow connection or just can’t be bothered with Google Earth. Click on each pushpin to get the name and date of the post and a link to the page. You can also peruse the folder list that appears on the left. Click on something you think sounds interesting, and it pops up on the map of the world.
If you want to fly around like Superman and tilt or spin the world (and its Scribble posts) like a basketball on the end of your finger, right-click here, save the file to your desktop, then open it in Google Earth. Easy as pie.
It’s a pretty neat way to find posts from interesting parts of the world, no matter when they were originally Scribbled. You can also write me scathing comments (remember: button is now at top of post, under headline) demanding to know why I have neglected your favorite sea-cliff, glacier or submarine canyon. If you just want to say that the baby turtles are cute, that’s okay, too.
