Another Blog Map

Oooh, this is Big Brother-like. Found out that I can view the blog map as a satellite photo and keep zooming in until the specific building is highlighted on the map. (See the red balloon above?) The buildings house Internet services like Verizon, Comcast, and AOL in geographic areas, not the location of everyone's home computer. Still amazing technology, isn't it? Just think, if I can find out who is looking at the blog for how many minutes and how often for free, what do you think websites know about us when they pay for a professional tracking service? They know which pages of a website are our favorites and whether we return for more visits. They know what time we visited and how long we visited. They know whether we prefer porn or recipes. A bit creepy....
