Google Earth reached 1 billion downloads and asked the infographic experts at JESS3 to help commemorate the milestone. We selected the “Around the world in 60 seconds” concept to add a story-telling dimension to the infographic while highlighting the ease and speed with which users can explore some of the most fascinating parts of the globe.
JESS3's President, COO and Co-Founder, Leslie Bradshaw, was named to the list, compiled by TopRank CEO Lee Odden, that includes industry leaders like Arianna Huffington, Randi Zuckerberg, Nilofer Merchant, Sloane Davidson, Ekaterina Walter, and more. Author and MarketingProfs Chief Content Officer Ann Handley, who graced last year's list and nominated Leslie for this year's, said of JESS3's chief, "She’s the brains (and possibly the brawn! – ha) behind JESS3, which has done the social web a big fat favor by relentlessly adhering to quality in the content it produces."

Notes Shasta Darlington of CNN: "They are an exclusive group of globe-trotting Internet investors, startup founders and tech junkies. Or you can just call them 'Geeks on a Plane.'" JESS3's Founder and CEO was one of said "geeks" who not only met with numerous entrepreneurs on the trip and throughout South America, but he also served as the trip's executive creative director where he lead the development of the trip's official comic book / "zine" and collateral. Look closely and you can see his signature JESS3 tee in CNN's shots of the trip!
