This is a cool program that lets you see different parts of the world (or, conversely, illustrates the chilling reach of Google): Globe Genie. It basically just randomizes Google Street Views but it manages to suck you in. It also reminds you how much of the world looks the same, landscape-wise: Central France could be Wisconsin, Russia looks like Wyoming, Tuscany like Northern California, etc.
Check it out–the button to randomize really does say “Teleport.”
Huh. That’s a fun little toy. Reminds me of how the novel Ringworld opens, with a 200-year-old protagonist who doesn’t want his birthday to end, so he keeps teleporting around the world trying to keep ahead of the approach of midnight. Or maybe he doesn’t want his birthday to arrive. It’s been a long time…
