I love my job. Well, more precisely, I love being a graduate student in oceanography. I get to do amazingly cool research, and get to go to amazingly cool places as well (even the Arctic! - no pun intended). However, every now-and-then I come across something that causes me to daydream about what it would be like to be in a different field. Today's daydream came courtesy of Google and their Google Lat/Long blog.
Recently they rigged up a Google "Street View" snow mobile to give us a true 3d look at the slopes for the upcoming Winter Olympics. People actually got paid to snow mobile around the slopes for a day!!!
