Where on Earth is Waldo???

Posted by on Fri, August 7th, 2009 at 3:02 pm

If you’re like me, you’ve wasted a fair amount of time on Google Earth just lookin’ around the planet at stuff. It is, afterall, a much cheaper way to travel. Well, a gal named Melanie Coles decided to use Google Earth in a really cool way for her graduating project (Coles is a Media Arts student). Coles, with the help of some volunteers, painted a large Waldo of the Where’s Waldo series on a large warehouse rooftop in Canada.

Now, the whole world can play Where’s Waldo on Google Earth! How cool is that?! See more info about it here.

What would you guys think about us doing something similar, maybe not with Waldo, but with Swag Bucks or Swag Codes hidden in pictures?

Could be somethin’ there….

Happy Friday Swagsters! Don’t you just love the excitement of Fridays? Sure, when we talk about weekends we’re technically talking about Saturdays and Sundays.
