Google Maps Slider

I have always been fascinated by things I suck at, and design is way up on my suck list. I’ve become much better over time, but boasting about that would be like boasting about progressing to a cushier level of Dante’s Easybake.

One of my favorite designers is Chris Coyier over at CSS Tricks. I’ve learned more about web page design from his site and screencasts than I have anywhere else. Without his help all of my web pages would look like MySpace threw up.

His latest post is on making an awesome Google Maps Slider, complete with HTML5 data elements for lon/lat. Take a look at the demo and the source code, marvel at the simplicity and elegance, and repress the urge to shoot yourself.
