Day 43

Spent today recovering a bit from Ludum Dare. I poked some more at the Ultimate Tic Tac Toe board with Fei very briefly, then moved on to learning about the Google Maps API. Jeff and I used the Directions API to get walking times between locations. It then turned out that Google prefers you not to use the data from the Directions API without displaying a map, so I also started looking at the more general-purpose Javascript API. Did you know there’s a fun widget for generating JSON to style Maps with?

Here’s a quick labels-only map, which I just tried unsuccessfully for over an hour to embed in this page.
