Google Earth is now available.
I just downloaded it and installed it, and I must say- WOW-
I still like NASA’s World Wind, but Google Earth has some features that are blowing me out of the water right now. I need to play with it a bit more to really find out it’s strengths and weaknesses. I’ll write up a full review of it shortly…
Nonetheless, I can’t wait to see how MSN’s “Virtual Earth” compares!

The day that this was posted, I had my entry linked on DCist which spawned a visitor from the Google HQ visit my website, and now this page is listed in the results of when my name is searched. This frustrates me quite a bit because my website has a robots.txt file that requests that the content of my website not be cached & cataloged on Google, Yahoo, and MSN (along with every other search website). I have requested that this entry be taken off of Google’s database, but at the time of this updated (July 19, 2005) this entry is still listed, and I am very annoyed.
I will update this again when the content has been removed…or if it still hasn’t at a later date…
I still need to write my review of the Google Earth!
