The first fully in-Earth message board

GEboards view threadOver on Google Earth Hacks we’ve just released GEboards, a completely in-Earth message board.

Following the release of Google Earth version 4.2, we realized that we could use the Flash player to accept text input in Google Earth.  Many lines of code later, we have GEboards.

Once you load the KML, you can create threads about any location on earth – the restaurant down the road, the strange plane in the sky, etc.  All of this happens without the need to use anything but Google Earth – not even the integrated web browser.

In addition, we’re giving away a SpaceNavigator to one lucky user.   Details on that can be found in our main forums here.

If you have any suggestions on how we could improve GEboards, please let us know.
