new globe applet

I've been hacking some new functionality into that small globe applet that's on my main blog page. Now it's interactive, try it out! You can select points that link to web pages, whereas before you could only spin it around and look at it. Also, now it has a nice animated zoom feature and it gets its coordinates and link from an XML dataset.

This is part of a new system I've been helping out on for the past few days that will probably be announced sometime next week. We'll have all of the code open sourced once we get a project home set up. The other people working on this have put years of thought into their vision of a location-rich web, good things are going to happen.
