Lots of good stuff on oreilly radar today. ...I have not mentioned this site before but it is quite interesting given Oreilly's focus on "The Alpha Geek". The idea of the blog is to post about new technologies, etc... Sounds like a lot of blogs and I was sceptical whether it deserved my time or not, but I have to say that I have been pleasantly surprised. So far, so good.

Anyway, three links for you today:

First, photos and maps. I just like the pictures. ...this is some pretty kick ass technology and, in my opinion, google is in a class of their own when it comes to map technology. Too bad MapQuest, etc have been around much longer and already have a following.

Second, do you feel like betting on the next big thing? This is interesting in more ways then I have time to write about right now, but: 1) The page is good for a quick look at all the newish technologies coming out. 2) The idea of creating index funds around very specific technologies is interesting. 3) I would like to know more about the correlation between success in this "market" and success in "the" market and success over the long term.

Finally, have you heard of Backpack? Looks pretty cool. The thing I like the most about it is that it is improving on what already exists. The software doesn't do anything that Notepad and Outlook can't do...it just does it better. I think there is a lot of room for improvement here. It is a right pain in the ass to keep notes and be organized day in and day out...but eventually, it will have to be easy. If computing is going to fulfill it's promise, then organization will be a requirement...as will flexibility.
