Hi there. Just wanted to let you know that I heard about your new book on Boing Boing and I went in the day it was released and picked it up. Started reading it and I'm TOTALLY hooked. Thanks for making history so amazingly interesting!

Excellent idea and very practical -just promoted it on several Social Bookmarking Sites!

Hey Steven, just picked up the new book and--just as I suspected--it is very intriguing. And tapping into the Long Tail of maps, absolutely brilliant. Keep up the good work.

Rikard Linde

Wonderful idea Steven. The first thing I did was to zoom out one step on the map and the page loaded all relevant links. Neat.
Now all I need is to move to NY:-) Hope you'll extend it to locations outside US.
Good work and good luck.

Jirka

This looks like a good and practical idea...

Any idea when you'll support areas in Canada?

I like the concept of Outside In.

Do you need to register as a user to submit a blog though?

My blog 'Serge the Concierge' does not address local issues but I wanted to submit 'hyperlocal blog' Baristanet (www.baristanet.com) which covers Montclair (where I am based), Glen Ridge and Bloomfield (all New Jersey).

Take care

Serge

Looks really interesting. What formats do you support for consuming and publishing the information? Have you looked at the GeoRSS and Microformat specifications for locations?

"Long zoom" indeed. Should have seen this coming :).

I signed really as an experiment. My city, abq. is very spread out not really barrio inclusive. Types, classes are all spread out through the city. What is going in my geo-neighborhood is not of much interest to me. I'm an artist living where I can find the affordable,practicle and unpretentious. And a big yard for my dogs. I may go to the heights or the valley but I don't hangout in either. So, we'll see how your experiment works for me. I'll let you know.

Interesting Idea.

I signed-up to try it out.

Good luck.

My Books

  • Steven Johnson: How We Got to Now: Six Innovations That Made the Modern World

    Steven Johnson: How We Got to Now: Six Innovations That Made the Modern World
    A history of innovation accompanied by a 6-part TV series on PBS and the BBC, this was the first of my books to crack the top 5 on the NY Times bestseller list. Appropriately for a book that celebrates diverse networks, this was the most collaborative of any of my books. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • Steven Johnson: Future Perfect: The Case For Progress In A Networked Age

    Steven Johnson: Future Perfect: The Case For Progress In A Networked Age
    My first book-length attempt to organize my writings about emergence and networks into something resembling a political philosophy, which I called Peer Progressivism. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation

    Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation
    An exploration of environments that lead to breakthrough innovation, in science, technology, business, and the arts. I conceived it as the closing book in a trilogy on innovative thinking, after Ghost Map and Invention. But in a way, it completes an investigation that runs through all the books, and laid the groundwork for How We Got To Now. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : The Invention of Air

    The Invention of Air
    The story of the British radical chemist Joseph Priestley, who ended up having a Zelig-like role in the American Revolution. My version of a founding fathers book, and a reminder that most of the Enlightenment was driven by open source ideals. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : The Ghost Map

    The Ghost Map
    The story of a terrifying outbreak of cholera in 1854 London 1854 that ended up changing the world. An idea book wrapped around a page-turner. I like to think of it as a sequel to Emergence if Emergence had been a disease thriller. You can see a trailer for the book here. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Everything Bad Is Good for You: How Today's Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter

    Everything Bad Is Good for You: How Today's Popular Culture Is Actually Making Us Smarter
    The title says it all. This one sparked a slightly insane international conversation about the state of pop culture -- and particularly games. There were more than a few dissenters, but the response was more positive than I had expected. And it got me on The Daily Show, which made it all worthwhile. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Mind Wide Open : Your Brain and the Neuroscience of Everyday Life

    Mind Wide Open : Your Brain and the Neuroscience of Everyday Life
    My first best-seller, and the only book I've written in which I appear as a recurring character, subjecting myself to a battery of humiliating brain scans. The last chapter on Freud and the neuroscientific model of the mind is one of my personal favorites. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software

    Emergence: The Connected Lives of Ants, Brains, Cities, and Software
    The story of bottom-up intelligence, from slime mold to Slashdot. Most of my books sold more copies than this one, but Emergence has influenced the most eclectic mix of fields: political campaigns, web business models, urban planning, the war on terror. (Available from IndieBound here.)

  • : Interface Culture : How New Technology Transforms the Way We Create and Communicate

    Interface Culture : How New Technology Transforms the Way We Create and Communicate
    My first. The book I wrote instead of finishing my dissertation, predicting the growing cultural significance of interface and information design. Still relevant, I think. But I haven't read it in a while, so who knows what's in there! (Available from IndieBound here.)
