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...

Michael

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.

    The Basics

    • I'm a father of three boys, husband of one wife, and author of eight books, and co-founder of three web sites. We spend most of the year in Marin County, California though I'm on the road a lot giving talks. (You can see the full story here.) Personal correspondence should go to sbeej68 at gmail dot com. If you're interested in having me speak at an event, drop a line to Wesley Neff at the Leigh Bureau (WesN at Leighbureau dot com.)

    My Books

    • : 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. Sold more copies in hardcover than anything else I've written.

    • : 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.

    • : The Ghost Map

      The Ghost Map
      The latest: 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.

    • : 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.

    • : 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.

    • : 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. Probably the most critically well-received all my books, and the one that has influenced the most eclectic mix of fields: political campaigns, web business models, urban planning, the war on terror.

    • : 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. Still in print almost a decade later, and still relevant, I think. But I haven't read it in a while, so who knows what's in there!
