Explore Shakespeare with Google

Filed under: GES — geoLibro @ 9:06 pm

Come on, Google. Why you wanna make us do all the work? Google launches Explore Shakespeare with Google and asks us to “take a literary field trip” by downloading Google Earth. Well, that would be step 1, perhaps (could be WorldWind, after all). But since you have all of those computers and all of those dollars, why not geotag the texts themselves so we can click straight out of the text into Earth or Maps? Or get a robot to do it. An entire summer of code and no Classic literature geotagging robot? Not even a Roomba mod? Sheesh.

Besides, it’s sort of been done by humans already anyway. Plug it into your fancy machines already, Google.
