Mapping Your Personal Worlds

Thanks to a pointer from Dori Smith at Backup Brain, I found World66's site that lets you map out the places you've been. Here's my US map, and you can easily create your own.





My world map isn't nearly so filled in, though I'll be adding China, Taiwan, Singapore and New Zealand to the list before the year is out. (Hmmm... this may motivate me to only visit big countries from now on.) You can create your own visited country map, too.





I had been thinking about whipping up something like this myself as part of an icebreaker for workshops and classes. I'd go beyond just making the maps and script it so that it picks out people who have visited the same unusual places (unusual to that particular group). Seems like a good way to get conversations started.
