The World as a Blog

This might be one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen the Internet do. Yes, that’s real time. It’s like being able to see little digital prayers floating up to heaven all over the world, and reading the words as they go up, so private and yet so public. Thousands of people, all as intricate and important as you and I.

That is so insane I can’t even believe it. In fact… I’m going to have to write a letter.

Dear Internet,

I love you.

Sincerely,
Josh Lewis

And as if that wasn’t enough, after following a few links from the above page and adding a couple special “meta” tags in my source code I’ve got a list of every (registered) blogger within 500 miles of my house.

Feel free to post links to your own “whoa, that’s amazing” sites in the Peanut Gallery.

    Is that list only for people registered with geocities? I find it interesting that I live with you and yet my blog doesn’t appear to be within a 500 mile radius of your house.

    Their site is ugly, by the way. Crappy font on black. Ewwwwwwwwwwww…. Aesthetically offensive.

    Yes, you do have to register. There are two meta tags (in the <head> tag) that you would need to use in order to get it to work. Look at my source HTML on my main page and see if you can find them. Then you only have to change one part (the name of the blog) and you can use it, since you’ve got the same lattitude and longitude I do.
