acoustic performance of MAPS

I am looking for a Yeah Yeah Yeah's acoustic performance. MAPS. It has dissappeared off Youtube and I am dying. Its Karen Oh and the guitarist. Its like a sit down session, not a true live show. In the beginning of the video she holds her hair in front of her face like a mustache and says "its karen OOOOHHHH". Its deadly. Please help me find a link to the video somewhere.

Block search, anyone?

Are there any new resources for the block search mapping that A9 used to have? You know, pictures taken sequentially along city blocks and mapped to the streets... I've missed it since they took it down, but it seems reasonable they would have sold the image library and technology to someone else...

A Legend in the Making

You are taking a walk around a public place in your city or town. This place is relatively new to you. If you had the opportunity to annotate a map and 'mark up' five categories of interest or experience, which five categories or types of sites might you choose to identify? Sensory experience? Social interaction? Sites of commerce? None of the above? Be as specific or general as you please.

Tour Para Bien Estar

I had the great fortune of recently running into this fine fellow, who is currently in the middle of riding his bike from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska clear to Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, all in the name of raising money for a youth home for at risk and abused teens in Alaska. Apparently, and unbeknownst to me, he has been wintering here in my home town of Missoula, MT for the past few months, but I only recently met him. We got to talking about his website, and he mentioned that he had been on the hunt for an easy way for him to mark his progress on a map for visitors and friends to follow. I, being the fairly technically minded guy that I am, would like to help with that. [more inside]
