Thanks to Yola, I’ve just discovered the exact iPhone application that I’ve been looking for! Enter: California Farmers’ Market Finder. It does everything that I want to in a farmers’ market app: sorts by day, locates the markets nearest me, plots them on a map — and it does it for the entire state! Thanks […]

Estonia and a whole host of other countries joined the expanded Schengen Zone today! >
No offense to Steve Lohr, but I’m not really sure what the point of his piece in today’s Times “Silicon Valley Shaped by Technology and Traffic” was. As far as I can tell, the main message is “geography matters.” Is this news to anyone, in late 2007? Really? Alan Wiig had a much more interesting […]
Paul Boutin astutely observed that the NYT buried the lede when it said that there are no less than 16 American spy agencies. My favorite? The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency — in other words, map spies! Speaking of maps and puzzles, check this: WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The only surviving copy of the 500-year-old map that first […]
