Looks like I'm headed to Cold Spring, New York this weekend.
Here's a map of Stonecrop, provided courtesy of Wikimapia.
I'm officially a Wikimapian, I suppose. I've now added two entries to the mashup of Google Maps and wiki technology, leaving the Isles of Shoals weeks ago as well.
I haven't made my first Wikipedia entry yet, though I have successfully fought and won a copyright battle on the behalf of my company, posting notice of the clear infringement to the community. The experience was quite an education, on all counts.
This map really belongs on Rich Planty Goodness and Stonecrop.org, however, not this rather barebones blog.
If that blog's proprietor digs it, in fact, he is more than welcome to grab the script from the source code of this post and use it on his blog and send it to the Stonecrop webmaster.
50 acres of gardens to wander through, contemplating the astonishing varierty of morphologies and adaption displayed by nature p and nurtured carefully by the hands of humans - sounds like a much needed antidote, even a panacea for my present immersion in the 24/7/365 beat of the online ecosytem of MMPORGs, discussion groups, email lists, Web sites, chat rooms, webcasts, podcast, vlogs, cable news, on-demand movies, MUDs and the other virtual worlds that in general skew wonderfully close to the metaverse.
