I was just sitting at my desk here in Brisbane and I received a phone call from Sean Keener in Chicago. He and Jen Leo are wandering the streets, lost. They asked me to look up on Yahoo Maps where they were and how to get where they wanted to go. Within 5 minutes I had the answer and sent them on their way. Through a combination of Voice-Over-IP and free minutes on Sean’s mobile he was able to get directions from halfway round the world.
Man, I love the internet.
