Google Dig a Hole Other Side of Earth Toronto
If you live in Toronto, do not, under any circumstances, dig a hole to the other side of the world.

Last Friday, I visited Google Canada's headquarters in the Toronto Life Complex and talked with Mike Pegg, Google Map's product marketing manager and the founder of Google Maps Mania (a blog devoted to Google Maps mashups and tools) and Tamara Micner, Google Canada’s communications officer, for a Torontoist article on Google Maps. The interview was a lot of fun (Pegg and Micner showed me a lot of great Toronto-themed map mashups), and it was interesting to see the glamorous Google office firsthand; not every office has a fully stocked kitchen and a patio that overlooks Toronto Square.
