Google Maps 'Bike There' Feature Request Petition

"Google Maps, Lemme Bike There, Feature Request Petition

Below is the petition to Google!
To: Google, and the Google Maps team

We would like a 'Bike There' feature added to Google Maps - to go with the current 'Drive There' and 'Take Public Transit' options.

The feature would take into account actual bicycle lanes from the locality being mapped, and it would automatically plan a route for a bicyclist, possibly even providing the cyclist options for either the most direct route, or the most bicycle-friendly (safest) route. The Google Maps-based third party site, (, provides these features for two metro areas - Portland, Oregon and Madison, Wisconsin, and there are countless other mapping initiatives around the world aimed at accomplishing the same goal. We hope that Google will consider building this feature into the core Google Maps service.

There are many reasons why this feature would be a wonderful edition to Google Maps. Among them, some of the most influential would be to:
* Make bicycling safer for millions of bicyclists around the world.
* Empower world citizens to better adapt their lifestyles to face the challenges of global climate change.
* Help Google realize its core mission of 'organizing the world's information and making it universally accessible and useful.'

By implementing the 'Take Public Transit' option, Google and the Google Maps team have shown themselves to be concerned and capable world citizens; a 'Bike There' feature addition to Google Maps would be the ultimate statement in support of sustainable development.

For more information on this feature request please visit the Google Maps 'Bike There' website (

Thank you, Google and the Google Maps team! And thank you, petitioners, for joining us in attempting to realize this very important goal!

Oh Baby

Hey guys,

I'm still not sure what this blog is about but since it's pretty determined that we all enjoy online videos, here is one I still find amazing even 10 days later:

Asian Baby Sings Hey Jude - Watch more free videos

On pitch and on beat! This kid sings better than I do.

Lately I've been watching a lot of videos online of Asian babies, including my nephew, who one of these days will probably make it onto this blog. Sorry for the creeper status.

Grizzly Bear - "While You Wait For The Others" (Live on KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic)

A new song by Grizzly Bear. It is quite good. They are playing tonight with the LA Philharmonic Orchestra at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. I am greatly envious of all who are attending.

Frisky Dingo

Finally, the continuation of the 2nd season of Frisky Dingo has arrived! If you aren't familiar with the show you should be. And "I don't have cable" is not an excuse.

Click here to see the new episode in all of its streaming glory! (

(I would suggest watching past episodes if you haven't seen the show as it is has a very linear structure.)

In other Adult Swim news, The Venture Brothers will be returning for a Third season in June. In HD! Hooray
