It's Google's World, and You Only Live In It

Soon you may start seeing real Google Maps markers everywhere across the world: Google has asked a whole bunch of famous people—like the chef Ferran Adria, artist Maya Lin, or puppeteer Al Gore—to share their favorite spots.

Google is placing physical markers in all these places with icons and plaques identifying them. If I had to put one, I'll choose Shake Shack at the Southeast Corner of Madison Square in NYC. And then a whole bunch of spots across the rest of NY, Madrid, Göteborg, and various ice cream shops in Tampa, FL. [Google Favorite Places via Techcrunch]
