Episode 32 of MacBreak gives a nice video overview of how to use Google Sketchup in conjunction with Google Earth. While they demo it on a Mac, it works the same on Windows. It is a great activity to for fun and work. Keep an eye on VSTV in January or February to see an overview of the project Sue and the students in the lab whipped up over the summer.
For those of you who are in to comics and who will be attending the AAG in San Francisco, keep in mind that the Alternative Press Expo, one of the siblings to the San Diego Comic-Con, will be taking place in San Fran on April 21 and 22, at the end of the AAG conference. Now I wish we had submitted a paper on the geography of comic universes…it would have been quite fitting. Well, we still plan to do an episode on it eventually.
