Whoa, Google’s new draggable driving directions are very cool. Love how you can re-route just by grabbing the proposed route line and moving it elsewhere.
Of course, it immediately led to silliness. I right away found myself trying to find obscure ways of getting from some place to the place across the street. For example, getting from Piatti Restaurant in La Jolla to the Marine Room restaurant in La Jolla, via … say, Minneapolis.
Trust me, while you might miss a few surfers straying onto Avenida de la Playa on the normal 0.5-mile route, you wouldn’t want to make the 3,938.5-mile detour.
