Sabroso Shot #21 - Amazing Finds on Google Earth

50 Amazing Finds on Google Earth is a project by 'Twisted Sifter'.

I'm pretty much unable to pretend that this is anything except a Buzzfeed-style 'listicle', which is therefore basically a glorified blog post, but hear me out...

What I like about this project is that it piggy-backs on an existing technology. Everyone is familiar with Google Maps/Google Earth, and this hits the perfect point between content that makes people curious, and content which is properly researched and built out. (As a thought experiment, how eager would you be to find 50 of anything for a blog post?).

The basic idea aside, it performed exceptionally well, and has been picked up by 150+ other websites, who all provided links. Pretty impressive coverage for something which is so simple.
