Earth of Code in Summer

Filed under: Development,FOSS,Life,Linux,Varsity — mifan @ 7:11 pm

IMHO, The Greatest Opensource competition ever for Students, the Google Summer of Code, recently concluded, and I was one of its succesful recipients (Hip, Hip, Hurrah :)). As customary, the Google Team Released a map of locations of the Students and Mentors of GSoc 2006, and in contrast to Googlemaps of 2005, we are on the 3D Globe, a.k.a Google Earth (Thank the stars that Linux Support for Google Earth was made available earlier this year. You do require Google Earth to view the map, which is in KML format). Below is a screenshot of Yours Truly pinpointed at Colombo on Google Earth running on Ubuntu Drake. Unfortunately, my mentor is all at Sea, literally, at the southern part of SL 🙂
