The Google Earth Blog is Ending Daily Posts

For most of the last decade The Google Earth Blog founded by Frank Taylor has been one of my go-to places for Google Earth tips, tricks, and tutorials. This morning I read Frank Taylor's announcement that he was ending daily updates. The archive of the blog will remain online.

In his announcement Frank Taylor cites changes to the Google Earth product and changes in Google's corporate communication policies as some of his reasons for discontinuing the daily updates on The Google Earth Blog. Specifically, Frank mentions that the direction in which Google is taking Google Earth is decidedly web-based but at the cost of removing many of the most powerful features of Google Earth.

I enjoyed The Google Earth Blog and I will miss the daily updates. Good luck to Frank, Tim, and Mickey with the next ventures in their lives.
