Yesterday I wish I would have had access to some known police hangouts via Google maps.. heck, there likely is a mashup out there that does this (there’s one for everything else). After 25 years of clean driving I managed to get pulled over doing 40 in a 30 zone (I know, big freaking deal!) To help in my rehabilitation I’ve added a Police Speed Trap zone to MyMaps and maybe it will save some other unlucky sucker from falling into the same “trap” that I did. FYI, have you checked out the icons that are now at your fingertips in Google maps lately? Its a breeze to share a map like this with others, taking about one minute to create. Now if all of Windsor can pitch in and help map the rest of the traps we’ll have a really useful resource ;0)

More on social networking… “Cliff” had som great comments in an earlier post and I have to agree with him. For me LinkedIn is becoming a must have for maintaining business relationships, while facebook and in my case, Flickr, are must haves for more casual and family ties/networking. As mentioned previously there’s a host of others that I also use but I’m hardly as dependant on those apps. So, how about a poll… sorry I don’t have a “none of the above” option, I’ll simply assume that everyone is using atleast one of the services mentioned below.
