Google was once again smart enough to recognize that people may type one less “o” or a few extra ones. But a few of the gooooogle URLs were already taken. Check it out:

The Telectroscope June 6, 2008

Over a century ago, an eccentric engineer from England began construction of the Telectroscope, a giant double-ended telescope designed to connect the cities of London and New York via a large tunnel running under the Atlantic Ocean. The dream unfortunately ended in tragedy but it was rediscovered by the engineer’s great-grandson and finally completed a few weeks ago, connecting the two metropolises.

The Telectroscope is actually a massive piece of interactive art by the artist Paul St. George. It provides a broadband connection between observers in London and observers in New York, allowing them to interact with one another in real time.
