Google Maps Mania

Just read about Google Maps Mania on the NYT site. It’s crazy how quickly things can become the new hotness, and it’s a good example of how complex things can be made easy to use with the web. There is super-high-tech software behind google maps, but because they have a pretty simple way for someone to use it in their own web app, creativity blooms.

Once they start asking money for it, of course, a lot of that will stop, and something else will take its place. Several more of these cycles will have to happen before somebody finally finds a way to make money off of web services.
