I thought this was amusing, I think this is all in fun. the Dude's site, is bare, though amusing at the layers of the joke. I got there from Google rumors: GoogleRumors ? Yahoo engineers prank Google
btw, beta yahoo maps looks good. Apparently they use Flash versus Google's DHTML but the navigation screen looks great!
Here's a link to Geeks in Anchorage, AK, put your mouse over the map, on the left, it bursts out at you!! Too kewl. If you go to Anchorage's local page you'll notice there's a wireless search, right there ;)
