Project 365 Week 2

Here we are at week two of Project 365. I’m starting to get into a routine with this process now. Click through a photo for a more detailed description. You can also keep up on Flickr. I’ll be doing weekly dumps to this blog for posterity, but will update Flickr pretty much nightly.

Around The Web

New York City From The Air

New York - Birds Eye View

Here’s a set of amazing aerial virtual tours of New York City. I’m not sure how they were made, but they are truly amazing. There are several views you can pick on the lower left side. Not to be missed.

Google Yankees

Google Street Views

Google enhanced it’s maps service by offering “street views”. Currently it’s only available in certain cities. Regardless it’s pretty cool. They appear as flash objects in those popup bubbles that Google Maps uses. you can drag and move around from within them as well similar to that of QuickTime VR.

I decided to take a look around NYC and make a few bookmarks. Enjoy.

Interestingly nothing near the NY Stock Exchange is visible. It’s notably blacked out for about a block around. Same goes for the United Nations. I’m virtually certain this is for security reasons.
