I am an avid "O'Reilly Radar" blog reader, and today this popped up from Brady Forrest. Evidently "The Onion" has done a release of Google World Layer with content from their new atlas, titled "Our Dumb World."
Here's the quote that gives the exact description of what this is:
Click on the Onion pins scattered around the globe to reveal mind-expanding factoids about the lesser, conquerable nations of the Earth. Come back each week to learn more about how little you know.
Check it out... it's pretty damn funny.
Kudos to Brady for digging this up! /LC
