Kristy from the block!

Okay, I'm sorry to be all linky today, but have you seen this A9 maps site? They just added Austin to their block-by-block map rendering capabilities. They don't have every block in town, of course, but they have pictures going block by block, both sides of the street, from all over the place. Wow. This will provide hours of entertainment. Some of the strange shots of alleys, street signs, and parked cards are wonderful. So, who has the job of taking all these pictures?

I broke it! I tried to go up Congress and it took me to Galveston. But it's still really cool. I was hoping I'd be out smoking in front of my office, since I often am, but I guess they make sure no one's around before they take the pictures.

Perhaps you actually found some secret wrinkle in time/space that provides a magical shortcut from Congress to Galveston! Not a computer bug at all, but a mind-blowing sci-fi super-ride! Plus think of all the tourist dollars....
