More Computers

I just learned that Google Maps now features weather information.  Yes!  This is what we needed, another automated source that says Partly Cloudy, 72.  But you know what?  A few people will use it, and that is a few more people who are not getting the weather locally.

Nate’s excellent post from the other day has me thinking.  There was quite a bit of traction and comment and interest.  The tone of some of it, to me, was, “Yeah, they need us, we are still important!  They can’t do it without us!”

Let’s make sure.  There is no competitive advantage to automated data.
