the information chasm widens

this morning while perusing cnn, i stumbled across an article on how google maps is being paired with existing external statistical data to some very creative ends. rocks, or if you are looking to rent an apartment or buy a home in major cities, google maps have been blended with the ever-popular craigslist. (by the way, when does roanoke get a craigslist? yes. i have emailed them.)

and the Patriot Act is going to protect me how? clearly what i was saying yesterday about the misunderstanding of how information is stored, manipulated and retrieved is evident here. the gap between those who get it and those who don't is growing. fotunately, those of us who get it like to share.
