Wow, talk about your tasteless Google Maps Mashups:

This one marks last week’s 100th anniversary of the San Francisco earthquake.

The actual coding is impressive. Cable cars and a plane move about the map, buildings catch on fire, and all the images are far too cartoony for a major natural disaster.

But the real treat comes when the actual map shakes. Yeah, it simulates the earthquake by shaking the map. As the author, Brian Morearty, explains, he was just trying to see if he could get a map to shake, and with the hundreth anniversary, he put two and two together. So I forgive, and after all, it could be worse. Someone is going to do a Holocaust mashup eventually, and you know it.
