If you want to create your own mashups and applications, here's a few new how-to programming articles now available on the /howto page :
- How To Add a Google Map To Your Web Page...Fast from Exploration Age shows how easy it can be to add a Google Map to any page. Nice straightforward demonstration.
- Google Maps AJAX and ASP.NET shows how to create an ASP.NET server control that would allow a .NET developer to harness the power of Google Maps in the code-behind model.

- All About Where's Tim Hibbard is a backgrounder by Tim, the guy whose location is always viewable to the world, day and night. Using his GPS enabled Nextel phone and a variety of Ajax and .NET code you can find him.
