Was just checking Google Maps for an upcoming meeting in Soho and noticed they’ve updated their satellite imagery to a new scan in downtown Manhattan that includes the new National September 11 Memorial.

I don’t know how new this is, but it’s nice to see…

This would be a good place for a sponsored link directing to the memorial page. I’m sure this will be a must-see destination for centuries to come.

I myself am hoping to make it down there this week or next.

We took Grant to the opening preseason Minnesota Vikings game (and first game back at the Metrodome since the roof collapsed)…

Had some fun with the kidz…

This is a bus stop…

This is a “meeting place”…

I went to New York for work, and Jenny tagged along…

And so did these yahoos…

And so did Batman…

And a shot of Ground Zero just before Hurricane Irene…

Meanwhile, the kids were perfectly happy at Nana and Papa’s…

And we discovered these Vikings upon returning home…

A quick overnight trip to Washington, DC turned into a 48 hour adventure amidst cancelled flights and some drama at the hotel I won’t get into…

The freemium option has limited bandwidth…

I actually found it quite difficult to log-in to my personal GoGo account to see how much GoGo Unlimited pricing was….$35/month = certainly not free.

A true freemium campaign should make it easy for me to upgrade my current account from the denial of service screen.

Because encountering a “Sorry, we’re limiting your internet” screen is extraordinarily frustrating (particular to a business travel with an e-mail inbox full of billable work) it should be as easy as possible for them to use the stick in the “carrot and stick” marketing strategy to take money from me in this situation.

But no. Not easy. Then I tried to just buy a one-day pass (thinking maybe that wouldn’t limit my usage), but I can’t report if that works since the payment system didn’t remember my billing information from my flight last week.

And since my wallet is in my jacket and since my jacket is in the overhead bin and since I’m in a window seat three people down from the aisle, I guess I’ll just stick with the freemium service for today.

GoGo is a NoGo. We’ll see if it opens back up enough for me to publish this post.

Even mounted to the columns at St. Patrick’s Cathedral (bonus: Bose speakers).
