Dave!I've been watching the Frappr (Friend Mapper) project with interest. It's a little raw around the edges, but there are some bloggers having a lot of fun with it (like Belinda over at Ninja Poodles), so I decided to start one so I can see where everybody comes from.

Just click here to visit the Blogography Map and add yourself! Feel free to list your blog or web site URL in your comments so that people can come visit you.

After that, you can browse the map (zooming in and out as needed) to see everybody's pins and then click on them to get details. Or you can click on a person's name in the list and be taking instantly to their pin and see where they are at in the world. Pretty nifty...

Frappr Sample

I was hoping to create Frappr maps to mark my travels, but there doesn't seem to be a way to create a "closed" map which allows only the administrator to add pins. I'll have to study the specs for Google Maps API so I can see what's involved with making one on my own.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I really must be getting back to catching up on my TiVo watching. A moment I have been dreaming of since the very first episode of The West Wing has finally come to pass: Toby's stupid, arrogant ass just got fired... I can't wait to see what else happened in the world of television while I was away.

    Yes, Toby has been fired! Yay! But, he isn’t gone, blah, and this means more of Whining Will, blah. And don’t you think Toby has confessed to protect others? He thinks C.J. is the leak. So “noble-Toby” confesses to protect C.J., Jed, and Leo. The real leak is probably Margaret, Leo, another secretary, or, of course, a Republican. This is, afterall, West Wing.

    Well at the time of writing this it feels a bit lonely over here with only “The Letchworth” to keep me company. You seem to be pretty popular on the “West coast” as i believe they call it. Hmm, staring at the map has made me focus in on “Oregon”, you never hear much of Oregon, does nothing much happen there?

  4. Chaz says:

    All this talk about Google Maps brings to mind a service that one of my friends is constantly talking about called GVisit. It uses the Google Map API to map where your latest visitors have come from. It’s an interesting concept, but it only allows a mapping of your 100 most recent visitors. I guess that could be a good thing since your map could get rather cluttered otherwise.

  5. That is so cool! Added myself to your map.

    This is neat-o! You always find the coolest shit, Dave!!! Maybe you have too much free time? JUST KIDDING! I know that is probably not the case! 🙂

    Nice. I thought you were the Spiderman photo myself!

  8. Belinda says:

    Thanks for the mention, and for, um, ‘splaining to me where in the world the name “Frappr” came from. Duh. Love ya, man! Happy trails!

    Count me as a recent add.
