"How Google Earth Ate Our Town"

Nanaimo is the future. Get used to it. Where can I sign up to get a GPS so I can track my dogs?

Nanaimo has been uber-mapped by Google, and everything from firetrucks to the grass-cutting machines have GPS in them, recording location and time telemetry into Google's Big Database in the Sky(tm).

And yes, you dead people aren't safe from this either: Nanaimo will be making available to Google the database of who-is-buried-where, so you may also have some extra visitors! :-)
