Google Latitude and my wife’s progress to Seoul
Do not doubt for a moment that this type of application, while not specifically designed for this (I assume), has wonderfully reassuring properties especially as one’s wife is hurtling close to the Arctic Circle on their way towards Seoul. With simple little applications like Google Latitude and Flight Stats (plenty to choose from), I watched her from JFK more or less the whole way there (and am now watching her make her way from the airport at Incheon to Seoul). Fantastic, reassuring, and even inspiring at the same time. Literally a half a world away. All the more distance to find her again as home is with her.
