Sunday Discussion Should Google Maps & Local Guides have more Black and White photographs? And if black and white photos are already on maps, I have not seen any. Image below is from a shop, you can see the colour photo below [1] -- which photo makes a person wish to visit more? Side by side is here too [2] ..

this is exactly why i sub and get alerted to the RSA channel -- for talks like this .. every so often someone stands up, tells it how it is and goes to bat for something you know to be true [about yourself] .. immediately going to watch the full length video now .. \o/ . .

To me, it simply depends on the location and the topic.

When you're out and about, keep a lookout for wild animals - in this case a herd of fifty five wild fallow deer. In my view, a local guide should report wildlife, but be careful as we don't want too many people taking a look and scaring them off, that's the dilemma..

the huge thing here, a child growing  up using gmail, hangouts, apps like docs for homework etc on looking for a job in say whirlpool -- in many ways will be skilled up from the get go -- as what they have seen on screen at a young age -- is exactly the same as a 100k employee org will see -- now that's the beauty ..
