Microsoft Invented Google Earth In the 90s, Then Totally Blew It

Does anyone remember TerraServer? Seems like the project established digital mapping fundamentals but Microsoft did nothing to capitalize on it.

آ…it's astounding to see just how much information about general web behavior Microsoft was able to glean from the project, and it's astounding to see how it essentially blew it by looking at Terraserver as a novelty project rather than a potentially world-changing one.
