So where is this driver training course?

There was no link or mention as to where this course was located so I had to do some, well, searching. It turns out that it is right here in the Twin Cities at the Dakota County Technical College in Rosemount.

Bing Maps Does Not

Bing’s Maps product is just not as fully developed as Google’s. Their formatting and depth of info are just more reasons why I’m a big fan of Google Maps.

Rent The Driving Track

In what I found to be an interesting tidbit, you can rent the DCTC’s Decision Driving Range employee roadway training. Being that I’m a partner at a Search Marketing Agency, I can’t see this coming in handy for us, but you never know. 🙂

Great photo Richard!

 

Richard’s Flash Website – Ironic?

In what could only be considered irony to a search marketer, for the website of a photographer who’s work was featured on the homepage of a search engine, Richard’s website is all in flash.
