The Baxter Academy for Technology and Science, a not-yet-extant charter high school that hopes to be located in the old Media Power building across from Portland Pie on York Street, announced a huge deal this week with Google to provide Chromebook laptops for each incoming freshman and sophomore during its 2012-13 (proposed) inaugural year.
We received a particularly outstanding letter in the office today. It's addressed to Brian Brown, executive director of the National Organization for Marriage, and the return address reads: "(Miss) Petunia DeWitt / [Street Address] / (the trailer out back) / Falmouth, ME."
I'll allow the highlights to speak for themselves:
Google Street View has come to Maine - and we expect privacy problems will not be far behind. To see what's going on, visit maps.google.com and notice there's an orange person-shaped figure at the top of the zoom-in/zoom-out slider on the left side of the map area. Drag the orange figure over the map itself, and you'll see areas highlighted in blue - those are where Street View works.
