This is just a quick entry to congratulate David Elkanich and company on the launch of their new legal ethics blog: The Ethical Quandary.

Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP, a former employer and current client, is finally getting on the blogging bandwagon and in a great way. I had a hand in all of this, of course. I prepared some Blogging Guidelines and the web server, in addition to modifying a WordPress plugin or two for the site.

I wish them all the best in their new endeavor and I encourage my four readers to check out the blog to learn more about ethics and legal issues. I’m subscribed!

We’ve been watching a lot of Teletubbies lately. I’m fascinated by the set and how they manage to almost always get direct sunlight right smack dab in the middle of England. So, I decided to do a little research and find out where Teletubbies is filmed.

  1. Google Earth .kmz file claiming to pinpoint the location of the outdoor studio
  2. Google maps link to same location above

What I find rather fascinating is that in the first link (viewing via Google Earth), it seems the area in question is only available at a lower resolution, so much lower that you can’t really make out whether it really is the filming location or not.

The second link shows the same area at a much higher resolution, but the details definitely aren’t the Teletubbies set.

If they really stopped filming Teletubbies in 2001, why is the Google Earth data so old? Also, did the producers really submit a request to minimize resolution on the studio and if so, for what possible reason?
