Google Maps Mashup: The Web 2.0 Innovation Map
Ryan Williams has put together a great new Google Maps mashup called "The Web 2.0 Innovation Map". The map plots 200 Web 2.0 applications such as Wikipedia and Bloglines. Using WHOIS data and contact information from the sites it then gets fed through the Yahoo! Geocoder API. In Ryan's words "It's an interesting way to chronicle how Web 2.0 development is distributed geographically." It does just that. The map gives you a greater appreciation for the fact that there are many web 2.0 properties in Canada as well as the U.S.
Micro Persuasion pointed me to a great article in the San Francisco Chronicle today that gives a good Web 2.0 "101" for those of you looking to learn more about the craze/hype/rising tide. :)
