Hello to all Google Maps Mania faithful! Can you believe this blog turns 3 years old today? Way back on April 13th, 2005 I decided to start blogging about the chatter I was seeing around the web and blogosphere about Google Maps. Days later Google Maps code was hacked up by Paul Rademacher to give way to the first ever Google Maps mashup - HousingMaps. Not long after this x-Googler Bret Taylor and his team sanctioned the concept by making the Google Maps API available. The rest is mashup history and Google Maps Mania has been right there with you all along the way. There has been no shortage of content to blog about. In fact, I usually have several email contributions and a reserve text file teeming with mashups, tools and Google Maps links that I can't evenfind the time to blog about! The introduction of Keir Clarke has helped with this and I hope you continue to enjoy his posts. In addition to the 3 years of Google Maps Mania blogging I'm also very close to a milestone post so stay tuned for that in the next few weeks! Thanks for 3 great years!
