Double Takes: Where on Earth is Waldo

Melanie Coles’ project “Where on Earth is Waldo” is maybe one of the coolest Web 2.0 spin-offs I’ve seen yet. Melanie has hidden a giant Waldo somewhere on a rooftop in Vancouver with the hopes of it appearing on Google Earth.

“My addition of a Waldo figure to Google Earth, in a way subverts the whole earth into being part of my game; each rooftop or field then becomes a place where Waldo could be hiding.”

HEr blog mentions, excitedly, the prospects of others partaking in the game. She hopes others will not only play the game, but hide their own giant Waldo’s in other parts of the world

To keep the game going.
