In the spirit of shameless self-promotion I invite AOIR  members to visit
our blog <http://www.floatingsheep.org/>  dedicated to mapping and analyzing
user generated information about places.  The results provide one glimpse of
what the "internet" knows about particular places.  The data/maps are part
of a larger academic research project and the blog provides an informal
means of distributing some of the findings.


Links to some examples of the maps are below


tml>  practice around the world


of Abortion services in the U.S.


.html>  York's Cyberscape


ml>  and the

ml>  U.S. presidential election


Bookstores <http://www.floatingsheep.org/2009/11/where-is-intellect.html>
and churches

There will be between 2-3 new posting a week at the FloatingSheep.org blog
<http://www.floatingsheep.org/>  so please subscribe via email, twitter
(@floating_sheep), or Atom feed.  


We would also greatly appreciate if you could forward this on to anyone you
think would be interested.  Thanks!


All comments and critiques are welcome.


Cheers...Matthew Zook


p.s. We've posted a quick
html>  overview of the project as well as listing academic articles if you
are interested in more in depth explanation
