My Toronto Roof

"Dad, check this out" is something I hear often from my three brilliant kids – whether they are creating music, doing art or meandering the web. A couple of days ago, Liam was working on one of our PCs and showed me this cool software that let us look at our old neighbourhood in Toronto from a satellite perspective. In fact, it even let us zoom in on the roof of our loft (which we’ve leased out to a great tenant, who, oddly enough, wrote us the next day to say that the roof had had a minor leak – Synchronicity??).

Keyhole is the name of the software company – and they’ve been purchased by Google (is this more of their EPIC adventure). Unfortunately, the software is not available for Macs – HAVE THEY LOST THEIR MINDS.



A television editor, writer & director since 1978. A Christian since 1982. More than a little frustrated with the Church in the West since late in the last millennium.

  1. Somehow I stumbled across Google print the other day, and this is the first line of copy on the page.

    “What is Google Print?
    Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information, but much of that information isn’t yet online.”

    Sounds pretty EPIC to me… 😛

  2. Indeed, Scott, indeed.
