Not only figuratively speaking (promoting python), but for practical reasons 
also, e.g.
Pythoon theft, Bipolar travel, and networking...

Imagine someone had snapped pictures of the Pythoon and uploaded while it was 
missing around where Dirk has mentioned

As part of the mobility/usability test, the bipolar went on a recent trip to 
Albany, Cambridge/Boston, and LA, mostly trails and parks.  My Garmin 295W has 
a built-in camera w/ geo tagging which has been quite handy on the trip.  
Photos were taken at rest location along the route, which should help the 
community track it down...  All went well, so the photos now serve a travel 
log.   http://www.panoramio.com/user/6086163/tags/Bipolar

On http://maps.google.com/ there is option to display photos, which is powered 
by Panoramio (Google's target 
acquisition, http://www.google.com/intl/en/press/annc/annc_panoramio.html)  It 
seems quite easy to use, other than the lack of batch uploading, which may have 
something to do with the unlimited storage allowance.  So far, I have only 
found a way via batch uploading to Picasa, then one click for each photo to 
It seems that Panoramio has to select / approve the photos before they can be 
searched.  In the mean time, the forum may be a way to connect...
