While the mashup is built for avid walkers and joggers, an interesting side benefit is that it can answer those distance questions you have always had. Then I am afraid you will have to find your own reason to play with the Gmap-Pedometer Mashup. :) Share and Enjoy: Categories: Cool Tools and Tips.

Michael Stein's Non-profit Technology Blog

Tools like Ajax, RSS, XML he sees as "refinements" of innovations from the.com period. Even though the [O'Reilly article] describes RSS as a push technology, I just don't see it that way.

As you know, I've always been cautious of the marketing frenzy around "web2.0"
