Facebook and the Virtual Time Machine

A friend (Facebook and otherwise) emailed me and mentioned a site called Vpike.

What an addictive....waste of time?  Wonderful use of the Internet?  Both?

Vpike calls itself the "Virtual Turnpike" and uses the Google Street Views and Maps to take you to many metropolitan areas.  So of course I had to spend an hour looking at the neighborhood where I grew up, and a couple of others I lived in over 30 years ago as an adult.

Ah, the Internet.  The Internet Time Machine.

That, and my trolling through Facebook last night to find people I knew as babies all grown up.  Am I the only person who uses the Internet and Facebook as a virtual time machine?
