Write on Google Earth with GPS Logger - Read Ayn Rand


So I liked Atlas Shrugged, but I don't think I would drive over 12,000 miles to "write" Read Ayn Rand with a GPS Logger ticking away the miles so I could display my passion for the author on Google Earth, but that's what Nick Newcomen did recently. He's a fan and wants to urge others to read the influential author's works. You can view it in Google Earth yourself at his site.

He used a Qstarz BT-Q1000X data logger, switching it on and off as he drove to write the letters. Starting in Texas, he wrote "RAND" first according to Wired. Glad he's a fan, I wonder if he drove through Galt's Gulch in Colorado on his trip?
