MIT's Technology Review - Google Earth Becoming a Standard

MIT Technology Review on Google EarthWade Roush writes an article at MIT's Technology Review about the explosion of new geographically annotated data on the Internet and how Google Earth's KML is becoming a de facto standard for sharing geo-referenced information. He interviewed Google Earth Blog for the story. The story comments on how the Google Earth Community and many thousands of people are publishing all kinds of useful geo-referenced data, and many applications are now supporting KML. He also points out how Google is using its new "Featured Content" layer to showcase some excellent examples of geo-referenced information uniquely suited to Google Earth's abilities. I found it interesting how he picked up on a small part of our interview when I commented that Microsoft may someday release its own competition for Google Earth in the form of a 3D virtual earth.
