If you’re not paying attention the recently launched Google Maps Australia might have you on walkabout before you know it. Our friends at the Sydney Morning Herald have picked up some quirks in the beta of this fully functional mapping and search service.
When you plug in a point to point direction request you’d better check on the veracity of the data their system returns. It appears to be a quirk in the underlying data being accessed from MapData Sciences and in true Google fashion it’ll be fixed before you have time to Digg this post.
Thanks to Techcrunch for pointing this out.
It’s Australia Day – a time to reflect on Australians making a difference, Australians delivering positive impact to the world.
This evening, Pacific Standard Time, Steve Killelea will be addressing NextNow, a select group of futurists based in Silicon Valley. Steve will be talking about the World Peace Index – a broad-based initiative he is leading to create and maintain a high profile index that will portray the behavioral ranking of nations for peace.
We don’t want to steal Steve’s thunder, as the World Peace Index will be launched in Q2 07, but we want to acknowledge that as one of the nation’s most successful entrepreneurs, we salute his latest efforts.
The Sydney Morning Herald gave a synopsis on Steve last year – you can read about him here.
