hello there

 My fascination with maps (bit of a cartophile) and mash-ups that the Web 2.0  internet now allows, (where would we be without all the google map hacks?), I keep an eye on where readers to isite are based.  To share this – below is a ‘real time’ snap shot list of visitor locations who were on line this afternoon, (well afternoon here),

I guess it ‘s what helps me keep blogging, knowing what the maven (*)  in me wants to share is being picked up, and I hope of use.  Now I need to find a way to get you all to comment now and again !

* Maven: (extract from wikipedia)

Malcolm Gladwell used it in his book The Tipping Point to describe those who are intense gatherers of information and impressions, and so are often the first to pick up on new or nascent trends.  Gladwell also suggests that mavens may act most effectively when in collaboration with connectors – i.e., those people who have wide network of casual acquaintances by whom they are trusted, often a network that crosses many social boundaries and groups. Connectors can thus easily and widely distribute the advice or insights of a maven.
