Dipping with Google maps

I love this. This is the impact of digital media. People are scouring Google maps to locate posh pools in order to party in them at odd hours – often when the owners are asleep or out. Called “Dipping” (no shit), they are obviously and quite practically using Facebook to organise their events. Hilarious.

The dippers often bring a bike, says The Telegraph, to make a quick escape and they like to dress up. Which seems a bit odd since you are supposed to be swimming. Hey ho.

20 top images in Google Maps

I never cease to be tickled by satellite images and the ingenuity of some people (and, ok, some brands) when it comes to playing around with Google Earth, the land, and the like.

Here is a nice little collection of the top 20 (one top 20 I imagine) “Awesome” images found in Google Maps, from Search Engine Land.

Also loving the Ghenghis Khan in Mongolia and the Icarus impact crater.
