Cool DC Tool for Metro-ing

I’m fond of the Metro but don’t ride it enough to know where to get off for new locations. The WMATA maps are okay for figuring it out, but I’m spoiled – I like the cool draggable “Web 2.0” Google style maps. Happily there’s a pretty good gmaps mash-up out there in the form of DCRails. It’s far from perfect – the worst flaw I have found is that when you key in an address it doesn’t zoom in on it, leaving the little destination marker obscured by the larger metro icons – but it’s a good use of the technology and I’m hopeful they’ll update and improve it soon.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
