Bing - New Bing Maps Application: Destination Maps - Bing Maps Blog - Bing Community
"Need to give people directions to your house, business or party (yeah, baby!). Use the Destination Maps application just specify a place (such as Club XS in Las Vegas); set the area of interest by dragging the sides of the on-map square to include all the areas people are coming from; then give the map a title. You can select multiple map styles such as Sketchy, European, American or Treasure (a la pirate! – featured). Very reminiscent of the Line Drive maps from my Vicinity days...only way fricking cooler!"

Chris Heathcote: anti-mega: pirates and scalpels
"These are the maps I create daily. They’re pirate maps – simple maps that have just the information I need to get somewhere. I’ve learnt that what’s most important for me are roads and roadnames. Often I’ll be using these with google maps on my phone – matching the flashing blue dot and roads with the map. Actually – I’ve very forgetful, and I’ll leave them in the hotel. Luckily, as I’ve said before, the learning is in the making."

"even if you used a tool like del.icio.us maps to find something you might use separate application to actually make yourself a pirate map...Imagine being able to link to completely different pirate map tool by passing location's latitude & longitude"
