This weekend, I did something a bit different than the last time I wrote — instead of writing something that geeks with maps can use, I wrote something that anyone who mentions a place in page can use.
The MetaCarta PageMapper lets you map out the locations mentioned in any page.
You can drag this link up to your browser toolbar, or you can just hit it here — see Boston, London, and Tokyo on a map with the click of a button.
It’s not perfect, but hey, nothing is. And I think it’s pretty neat.
