You know I started this blog to keep friends and family up to date with whats happening here in New York.
Although I still have lots of friends checking in but I also post a lot about work and technology which my geek colleagues read. It really hits home how widely spread people that visit this blog are when you check out this map;
Each of those dots represent someone from somewhere in the world that people have visited my blog from.
This free widget from maps.amung.us (check in the right hand colum) tracks the ip address and location people visit from and then displays this information in a real time map.
I dont really know what this means in the long run but what it does mean in the short run is that peoples abilities to communicate widely with nothing more than an internet connection and a free tool like blogger is huge.
Got something to say....... you've never had a better time to do it than now.
