Fab Friday is Back

After a one week hiatus, Fab Friday is back, and let me tell you, I missed you. To celebrate, I brought you something...two more videos!

This week, Paul teamed up with Brendan Kenny for a Maps Developer Live event: Visualizing Data with the Google Maps API: A Journey of 245k Points.
