What have I been up to?

So, after weeks of working 12 hour days, I can finally announce what I was working on — Google Earth 5.0 I developed the ‘Ocean Observations’ layer which, along with the ability to view historical imagery, see Mars, and dive in the Ocean, comprises the latest GE release. To cap off this work, I got to attend (and present) at the Google Earth 5 release party today in San Francisco, which was a lot of fun. Opening remarks were given by Eric Schmidt, Al Gore, and the amazing Sylvia Earle. Jimmy Buffet wrapped things up by singing us a fun little song (while being fixated on the bubbly lectern). He also provided the quote of the day: “Without geography, you are nowhere.”

Some more links from the day:
