Douglas Bowman : Google > Measure Map - Congratulations to Jeff Veen and the entire Adaptive Path team that worked on Measure Map. Here's to even better things ahead.

Jason Shellen : Official Google Blog: Here comes Measure Map - Google picks up Measure Map plus co-creator Jeff Veen and crew. Glad to have the deal all sewn up. #

kellan : MeasureMap goes to Google, which means Ruby at Google! - Beginning of a trend? (I'd say this will fix the MeasureMap scalability probs, except G hasn't fixed the ones with Gurchin yet) #

jkottke : Google buys Measure Map, Jeff Veen leaves Adaptive Path to work at Google - Google buys Measure Map, Jeff Veen leaves Adaptive Path to work at Google.

plasticbag : It's official! Google buys Measuremap! - I've chatted to Veen a few times over the last few months but still this is a surprise. It's a lovely piece of work, which I imagine will fit Blogger very well. And I'm looking forward to hearing about Google's culture and swapping notes...

Linkorama : Here comes Measure Map - Bought by Google, congrats AP!

Jeremy Zawodny : Google Maps - Google Maps: just what you think it is

Jason Shellen : Google Maps - Cool maps, from Google. Click and drag is my favorite feature. #

Andy Baio : Google Maps - insanely great UI; it's only missing personalization and better URIs [via]  [via]

doug : Google Maps - Check out Google?s way-cool mapping service in any non-Safari browser. Drag the map around, quick zooming, directions from A to B, beautiful detail, and more? Look out MapQuest.

jkottke : Google Maps is in beta - Safari not supported yet.

Rod Begbie : Google Maps - Another boring "it's been done" problem re-solved in a funky DHTML way by the brains at Google. [via#

Dan Cederholm : Google Maps - Linked from everywhere, but worth it. Hope to see support for Safari, eventually.

Anne van Kesteren : Google Maps - Yay, they use XHTML as text/html! (Too bad they violate section C and such, but whatever.) #

Simon Willison : Google Maps - Very slick, but sadly non functional for Safari uses. (via) [via]

gleuschk : new button on Google Maps: Hybrid - superextramegacool

These web sites are identical

doug : These web sites are identical - Purely identical. Even created and maintained by the same person. Actually, this is interesting comparison data, but I?d prefer the sample size to be much bigger. Not sure how Stopdesign ended up as the least dissident.

Dan Cederholm : These web sites are identical -- or are they? - A frighteningly thorough comparison of 10 sites and their trends.

Wayne Burkett : These web sites are identical?or are they? [phnk] - This is extremely useful, interesting. #

Jon Hicks : I'm 28% dissident! - Not as as rebellious as Jakob strangely…

Andy Baio : Common practices between guru CSS blogs - an excellent survey [via]  [via]

deusx : These web sites are identical?or are they? [phnk] - "What is hence noteworthy is that all these designs resemble themselves very much." Er, well, they *are* all blogs, aren't they? I mean, variety yes, but one would expect a lot of commonalities between blogs.

Philippe Janvier : These web sites are identical - or are they ? - "This survey compares 10 web sites through elements of their layout : styles, page construction and elements...". Conclusion : Similar layouts, Identical contents, Coding the same way, Inheritance from print design.

Paul Hammond : These web sites are identical - or are they? [phnk] - This survey compares 10 web sites through elements of their layout: styles, page construction and elements

Mark Pilgrim : conformity among the a-list designers - baaaaaaaah #
