Using frappr we can create a map using the Google Maps interface to get a view of all the individual locations of the members here, showing us a different perspective of the iDevGames community.
Before going and adding yourself I would appreciate it if you could use this format:
"First Last (handle)" (without the quotes)
This is a completely opt-in map, so feel free not to add yourself for any reason.
Check it out, it's mighty cool.
EDIT: if you screw up the format, don't worry. Just let me know and I'll delete your entry so you can recreate your name properly.

Oh, I messed up with the name format. Ohwell, now I know where Keith lives, so when he's not online, I can go ask him directly.

Shouldn't the map's default view be set to show the entire planet?
Mapping iDevGames - lightbringer - Oct 26, 2005 11:20 PM
Fixed. Now it by default shows the world view (thanks for pointing that out).

Cool! I'm in there now.
My peg actually lands quite close to where I live, which in case anyone is interested, looks like this from the air:

I'm in! l00k 4 t3h n00b!

I wonder if there is a way to specify a specific latitude / longitude (I'm definitely not on the location the zoomed in satellite view shows )

Whoo, Portland OR in the house! The little tick mark landed only about a mile south of my house.. pretty good

LOL to Volte..
Not that it isnt neat, I prefer looking for theme parks in satellite view, than know where people live though.

See this is tricky. I *live* in Houston, but my heart's in Montreal.
Sings *I left my heart, in San Fransisco*
This map clearly leaves no room for existentialist dilemmas. Bah humbug.

I'd add myself if it bloody recognised my City. What is the format for non-US people to enter there?
Monte: You do realise somebudy might just have reprogrammed a nuclear missile to point at a large building with a swimming pool on top?

Very cool little toy. Maybe we can add a link this to the main page?

How weird. I was thinking of this last night.
