GeoURL - a neat idea

Permalinks to this entry: individual page or in monthly context. For more material from my journal, visit my home page or the archive.

Okay, so what if you wanted to know about which Web sites are physically close to one another? Now there is a way: GeoURL.

Let's make it concrete. Not many Web sites are yet in the database, but here are the ones within 100 miles of Vancouver. Here's another view. (I'm not in there yet.)

The locations here refer to the proximity of the people who maintain the sites or the things they are about, not the actual server machines. My site will be listed for the Vancouver area, not Texas, which is where my Web server is.

Neat. Found it via Doc Searls.
