Here's what Mike Pegg had to say on 13th April 2005 -
If you're like me you were absolutely floored when Google came out with the Google Maps service. Sure, it's just another mapping service ... until you realize it's full potential. The ability to toggle between regular street/road maps and a satellite view is unreal. I've started to see a lot of buzz around the blogging community about Google Maps so I've decided to help you keep up with the Google Maps related sites, blogs and tools that are cropping up.8,559 articles and 17,780,391 page views later there's still a lot of buzz around Google Maps. With the emergence of many other mapping platforms that buzz just keeps getting louder. Our work is not yet done.
Stay tuned ....
