Hat tip: The Atlantic — Cities: Place Matters.
I’m moving Intel campuses1“Campi”? Nope, that would be sometimes frowned upon. :-( later this week — from Jones Farm to Hawthorn Farm. The Jones Farm campus is great for walking. It’s time for a quick visit to Google maps to see what Hawthorn Farm has to offer. I see what might be nice 1.2 and 1.5 mile walks.2Okay, the southern leg of the 1.2-mile route doesn’t look quite as nice. At least, not from the satellite. :-)
I wonder what walking is available indoors at Hawthorn Farm other than the treadmills in the exercise center.

The map above shows H1N1 Swine Flu cases reported in 2009.
- Pink markers are suspect
- Purple markers are confirmed
- Deaths lack a dot in marker
- Yellow markers are negative
Update: Here are some more useful swine flu links.
Great circle routes fascinate me; they’re so unintuitive plotted on the two-dimensional maps we normally see.
Heather flew from Portland, Ore. to Amsterdam last week, so I thought I’d map her flight.
She flew over Washington, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Nunavut Territory, Greenland, Iceland, and Scotland (assuming the flight was straight, probably not a safe assumption).
I mapped a few simple walking routes in and around the Intel Jones Farm campus. Imagine my surprise to find the routes have nice distances of 0.5, 1.0, and 1.5 miles.
Now I have more exercise options. ;-)
