MapQuest Google Bomb

MapQuestI think it is unfortunate that “MapQuest” has in large part become the generic term for online mapping. If someone who is Internet-illiterate is told to “MapQuest an address” they will likely end up at mapquest.com instead of using a more advanced mapping service such as, especially, Google Maps. So let’s Google Bomb the term “MapQuest“!

Updated Site

I’ve finally put together my website. I’ll be posting thoughts on this blog from time to time, mostly about web development, but also about culture, cycling, and life in Portland. This code on this site is XHTML5; it’s my first draft of the theme, so I’ll be making improvements over time. I also want to integrate my shared items from Google Reader, and my Tweets.

I’ve been working on some exciting things at Shepherd Interactive, and I’m looking forward to sharing about them here. I need to figure out a better way of listing the projects I’m working on, and order/filter them in meaningful ways.

Looking forward to sharing the Web with you.
