Watching economists work

Inspired by Joshua Gans, I used Google Maps Australia to pull up the place where I work. I’m in the honeycomb-shaped building on this map.

Sure, their positioning isn’t perfect. But I still feel like a little kid every time I look down from space on places I know.

    And I love google earth! Fantastic.

    One night I was flying over east Java on an international flight and there were no clouds – I could clearly see the lights of human settlement and it looked as if I was looking over a map! When I had access to a map I realised that I had indeed been looking over that part of Java. Fantastic.
