ASCII Maps : http://www.asciimaps.com/ (over Google Map or Hyrid) as you drill down into the map and the ASCII changes into more detailed closeup maps.

Dynamic zoom window (Google Maps) : http://maps.google.com has added a small window in the lower right corner of the map window (that can be hidden) which allows you to dynamically reposition your current view.

IvyGIS : http://ivygis.justec.co.in/ (by Robert Thau) is a Rails engine which connects to MapServer and PostGIS databases and can display Google Maps-style views. Here is a demo that uses the SVG display feature of Firefox 1.5+ to overlay geometries obtained from the PostGIS server on top of MapServer image tiles

"Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainty." — Erich Fromm
"I long to accomplish great and noble tasks, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker." — Helen Keller
"I warn you. Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself, and yourself alone, one question... Does this path have a heart? The trouble is nobody asks this question; and when a man realizes he has taken a path without a heart, the path is ready to kill him. At that point very few men can stop to deliberate, and leave the path. For me there is only the travelling on paths that have heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length. And there I travel looking, looking breathlessly." — Carlos Castenada, from The Teachings of Don Juan
