Amazing Google Earth Image

This has more than likely don’t the rounds of the Internet but I have just discovered it. This image is a screenshot from Google Maps™. The Coordinates work for Google Earth as well.

The place is between Medicine Hut and Maple Creek in the state of Alberta, Canada.

Exact Location: 50° 0’38.20″N 110° 6’48.32″W

Google Maps Image Head

To say that this is amazing is an understatement. What are the chances of a mountain or old creek/riverbed eroding in such a manner as to create a giant carved head that we would recognise or associate with as being human in form? Or is there a bigger story here. By the way I am not convinced that it is a message from aliens but it is interesting. Nature is indeed amazing!


Marketing; Thinking Big – Firefox Crop Circle

Firefox Crop Circle

I blogged about our efforts to market The Global Geek Podcast. With the blessing of the Mozilla Foundation the Oregon State Linux Users Group made a 45,000+ square foot crop circle! Wow.

Of course Mozilla agreed to it, that is great advertising and it is very cool to boot. The circle took a team of 12 more than 14 hours to complete. The stunt was in celebration of Firefox reaching 200 million downloads. Check out the whole story and the 12 weeks of planning that went into it.

Now who wants to do one for The Global Geek Podcast? Or do I have to find some aliens?
