Two pieces of news from the Google front:
- As reported by O'Reilly Radar, the Inquisitr, and Destination CRM Blog, it is possible to harness the search information within Google to track regional flu outbreaks. Face it, if a bunch of people in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area start searching for "flu," perhaps something is up. I'll grant that the system can be gamed or otherwise malfunction - it will always seem like there's a flu epidemic in Milan - but it's still a good use of technology.
- As reported by Computeractive and ReadWriteWeb, Google Earth now features a historical view of Rome circa 320 AD.
