I’ve Been Chosen

Isn’t that the line from A Toy Story? I’ve been called up to fulfill my civic duty. Tomorrow morning, I’ll be a juror for Orange County, Florida.

Oh joy.

But check this out…I’ve been playing with the new Google Maps that launched this week. It’s very slick. I don’t have the address of the parking lot I have to drive to tomorrow (it’s separate from the Court House and they bus us I guess). But I knew the intersection. So I asked Google Maps to show me “Amelia St & Hughey Ave, Orlando”. It pinpointed it perfectly. Then it gives the option to get directions to or from there. I chose “to” and put in “MCO” which is the airport code for Orlando International Airport (why it’s not OIA I don’t know). I’m dropping Patricia off there in the morning. Well, Google Maps knew what “MCO” meant and gave me a perfect map.

Though I don’t know if I can vouch for jury duty, I can vouch for Google Maps!

  • Hi Rob,

    “MCO” stands for McCoy air field, the former name of the military base before it became Orlando international airport.
