Later I went to hang out at Chez Economou, and after watching a totally crazy martial arts movie (no plot, but incredible and often silly special effects), we communally played with Google Earth for about 3 hours. Yes, Google Earth, and more importantly, sattelite imagery, is just that cool. We saw a number of cities we had each lived in, then went looking for volcanoes and other landmarks. Hooray for Earthsats.
