Google Earth and Video help you learn about and stay in touch with T-dot

For those of you who are far away from Toronto like I am, or even have never been there, there are a couple tools you should be aware of. They are from Google, and they are free, and they are oh-so-cool!

One is Google Earth which "...combines satellite imagery, maps and the power of Google Search to put the world's geographic information at your fingertips." You can use it to explore Toronto, though it's coverage beyond the U.S. in terms of searching for addresses was a little limited last time I used it.

The next tool I just discovered today and it's called Google Video. Now what's cool about this is that you can find videos that have been published on the web by both pros and everyday people. Seach for "Toronto" and you'll currently find over 500 videos! Here's a sample:
