We are always wary of any description text that states ‘one of the most interesting things you’ll watch all day’ but it is actually a really neat movie and product, so we’ll let the marketing department off this time – flutter:



Written in Adobe Flex, the application mashes up ESRI’s ArcGIS Online mapping services with some of the most popular media feeds available today: Twitter, Flickr, & YouTube.
