Google Street View… the possibilities are endless…
Palazzo Pitti... and beyond...
While reading an ebook – and listening to jazz radio webstyle, we did a little checkup on the geography of Florence, and walked around the city blocks at full-screen with google maps..
And old memories are refreshed and new.. and some adjusted a bit.. with some years in between – the architecture clearly looks a bit different than remembered, and even more beautiful than last visit..

Another confession here; I love my mac and couch.
A new decade barely started, and I’m giving some afterthought to the influx of our new gadgets on everyday life and habits. The fantasy of a little magic box with all kinds of learing and entertainment seems to be right in my lap while I’m chilling out on the couch in my livingroom.
A small 12″ mac powerbook – with jazz radio, all kinds of webtv channels, talk radio, cd’s, dvd’s, books, newspapers, magazines – and different blogs to digest, socialize, discuss and reach out to friends all over the world. Thank you Apple, and thank you Progress.
