The beautiful interior of Allen Fieldhouse (University of Kansas)

While checking out the vendors at Where 2.0, I stopped to play with the Liquid Galaxy that was set-up in Google’s booth. Up there at the time happened to be Brian McClendon, VP of Engineering at Google and a huge Kansas Jayhawks fan. He was very excited to show me the new 3D model of Allen Fieldhouse, and for good reason — it’s stunning!

Like some other models we’ve shown you recently (such as Cowboys Stadium in Dallas), the real beauty of this model is the inside.


The level of detail inside of this stadium is amazing! Scoreboards, banners, hoops, rafters, seats, etc. It’s really like being there. Brian has expressed dismay that he wasn’t able to add another Championship banner to the stadium model this season, but there’s always next year.

Go check it out for yourself. Just use this KML file to fly down to Lawrence, Kansas to see just how impressive it is.

Postini EZCommand Shell makes things even easier

Today, we are open sourcing the Postini EZCommand Shell, a Perl script allowing Postini administrators to issue EZCommands to Postini from a command line.

The script is useful in two ways. First, it allows Postini administrators to make Postini EZCommands from a terminal. Second, it provides sample code for developers. For years we’ve had the Postini EZCommand, but never out-of-the-box sample code that companies could use. This code gives developers a helpful guide to integrate EZCommand with their internal systems.

Postini EZCommand Shell version 1.0.0 supports the following EZCommands:
