Question:
‘Genre Books’ is to ‘Writer’
as
‘Web Maps’ is to …?

Choices:
• [a] iPhone [...since the buzz is about it- the Paris Hilton of the technorati]
• [b] Paris Hilton [...since the buzz is about her- the iPhone of the glitterati]
• [c] Geographer [...since ESRI Press said so]
• [d] Programmer/Developer

Answer:
• If you answered [c], you have spent a lot of time around ESRI-championed web maps with 8 direction tags, a dogged insistence on not exploiting browser cache and a ridiculous north arrow on every map- never mind that so far no one has turned a browser upside down.
