We reported on this several months ago when we were involved in the shooting of this project. Artists Ben Kinsley and Robin Hewlett collaborated with the Google Street View team to create “Street with a View”. This project involved months of planning, a cast of hundreds of Pittsburghers, and the cooperation of the Mattress Factory. Here is the Official Street With A View Web Site.
This performative easter egg is, hands down, the coolest and most elaborate easter egg that google has ever snuck in to one of their products. Check it out!

Sounds as cute and no-brain as the above bun-bun, right?

Located in downtown Sheridan, Wyoming, the Fulmer Public Library is a great place to get free wifi, use the library computers, check out a book on the history of the western states of America, and rent DVDs about local history, such as the Bozeman Trail.
Hold on to your cowboy hat!
Experian Terrible and Awesome at the Same Time (or, How to Reach a Real Human in the Age of Telephone Automation)
I had some trouble with my credit due to someone else’s social security number being on my credit report. Don’t worry folks, I’m fine, it’s just my financial spirit that took a beating. I’d like to outline to you here what went wrong, and how I dealt with the credit bureau. I have to type up this report for my records anyways!

WalkScore.com’s website provides a service to those people who apparently don’t get out of their car enough to realize that they can walk (or not, if you live in certain areas) to lots of places for daily goods and services.
I like this website, namely because I’m about to move and thinking about a new city and where we can get the things we’re used to here in Polish Hill (which scored a 77 out of 100, btw): A fresh bread bakery, a good bar, a fish deli, an italian deli, an italian cafe, a great diner, a wholesale restaurant dealer, a classic 1920’s ice cream shop, a fabulous deli restaurant, several paint stores, a convenience store, several large parks, a city pool, a church, asian food markets, masseuse, yoga studios, a stipper club (I think — never been to Bare Elegance), and some cool boutiques/stores — and we don’t even live in one of the sanctioned ‘cool’ areas of Pittsburgh.
Despite much trial and tribulation, one of the coolest Google easter eggs ever will be coming to a Firefox near you. I don’t want to spoil anything, but rather whet your appetites. Here are two photos from the making of this Google easter egg. I will not be releasing any more documentation until the thing goes live. Trust me, it will be even cooler than you think. Special thanks to
redacted and redacted for putting Pittsburgh on the map. Hint Hint.
Stay tuned. We’ll be breaking this story when it goes live.Contact
As a Pittsburgh Penguins fan, I have been very remorseful about not following their progress very closely over the past few years. I watch highlights on the news, and listen on the radio when there is a game on and I am in the car, but that has been about it. However, I have an excuse. I do not have cable television, and all of the games are broadcast on the cable television channel Verses. Aside form watching an occasional game on NBC broadcast TV @ 1:30 in the afternoon on Sunday, I have been a totally whack fan.
So anyway, I figured out how to stick it to the man! I refuse to pay for almost any media, and I am certainly not going to start paying for cable television, the lowest form of expression in popular media. So, my friends, if you don’t already know, HERE IS HOW TO WATCH ANY LIVE EVENT FOR FREE!Contact
