Cool idea. Needs more people.

Where's Willy? (for Canada) and Where's George? (for the U.S.A.) are Web sites that let you track the movements of dollar bills (and other bills) as they circulate.

To be genuinely interesting, they need more participants. For instance, the Canadian $5 bill with the most "hops" hasn't even left Ontario yet, while its American $1 equivalent has shuffled all the way from Ohio through Kansas to Missouri. And all three Canadian fives I tried were making their first appearance in the system when I tried them. Woo-woo.
