iApprove: Google.

October 27, 2008

I just had to say it.  It all started this morning, when I was thinking of writing a novella set in England.  Problem is, I know very little about England outside London.  Well, I didn’t want London; I wanted English countryside.  So I pulled up Google Maps.

I found a nice area – City of Carlisle – and set to researching everything I could about it.  I started out with Wikipedia, and then whenever I hit a dead end I buzzed over to do a Google search.  It neatly filled in any gaps I had.

While I’m still a long way from finishing my studies, I’d just like to point out that Google is a very, very handy tool for finding stuff.  And their maps are awesome.
