    Hi folks, we're at Google in San Francisco waiting for the Google Maps announcement to kick off. Expect about a 9:30 a.m. launch here. Stand by.

    Hey everyone, we're all set. The overhead camera's a good sign there will be some mobile demos.

    Is google doing a live youtube feed of this?
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/6/2012 4:23:24 PM
    @redth Nope, unfortunately.

    This event is not being live-streamed on the Youtubles. You're stuck with text reporting and commentary, with photos from Josh.

    I stand corrected!
  • Rafe 6/6/2012 4:25:18 PM
    But, obviously, the YT promo video is up. Thanks for the heads-up there, Google.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/6/2012 4:27:55 PM
    Alright folks, here we go.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/6/2012 4:28:33 PM
    False alarm, it was just a "shut off your cell phones" public service announcement.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/6/2012 4:28:55 PM
  • Rafe 6/6/2012 4:29:06 PM
    Event should be starting soon, they say.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/6/2012 4:31:02 PM
    Hmmm, so some are saying that video link isn't working for them. Worked for us.
  • Rafe 6/6/2012 4:31:10 PM
    There are no car displays visible. I'm bummed but not surprised. See my wishful thinking at cnet.co

    Lovely video now playing

    What we're getting today is mostly likely to be news about new 3D-ification of Google Maps and some cool new toys for Android users.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/6/2012 4:32:16 PM
  • Rafe 6/6/2012 4:32:27 PM
    Not much for Apple-heads, obviously.
  • jaymar.cabebe 6/6/2012 4:32:44 PM
    3D is fun and all, but I'm hoping for something more...
  • Rafe 6/6/2012 4:32:44 PM
    "Welcome to the next dimension" they say. Rod Serling not present.
  • Josh Lowensohn 6/6/2012 4:32:47 PM
  • Rafe 6/6/2012 4:33:01 PM
    Brian McClendon, in charge of Google Geo, now up

    History lesson time.

    Brian came from SGI, building graphics supercomputers.

    Talking about "Space to Face" of zoomable satellite imagery that zoomed into aerial views and terrain data. Looks like Google Earth. Ran on a supercomputer.

    Then they started porting in, in 1998, to PCs.

    ITLL HPN was his license plate
  • Rafe 6/6/2012 4:35:17 PM
    In 2001, Keyhole (man I love that company) was founded. That's what Google bought to make Earth
