I have had the pleasure of working with Tom Jordan of Meantooth Grin for some time now and am thrilled to introduce you to the band. Deservedly, Meantooth Grin won the People’s Choice WAMI last year for Best Blues Band of 2010. Their music has a depth and soul to it that I really enjoy so I encourage you to check them out. You can Like them on Facebook and check out their new song Insomnia on ReverbNation. It will play automatically when it loads so make sure you turn your volume up!
Schmap? What the heck is a Schmap…
I was asking the same thing when I got an email from Schmap’s editor stating that one of my photos on Flickr was being considered for use on the Schmap site listing for the Cummer Museum and Gallery in Jacksonville.
Schmap is an interactive virtual mapping system and a fabulous idea. To be honest, I had never even heard of Schmap before I got the email.
Exploring a Schmap Guide is a uniquely interactive experience: maps and guide content are dynamically integrated, allowing intuitive, real-time access to reviews and photo slideshows for places of interest.
Schmap allows you to view photos taken by other people who have been there, not just canned stock photography. There is a customizable widget that you can use for events and even an uber desktop for your computer that you can customize for location. Overall it is a good tool for the knowledge-loving traveler.
