Cool Zip Code Map

I know all my fans have been wondering where I have been the last two months. But I assure both of you, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I have some very interesting news items that I plan to pontificate on in the near future. But in the meantime, I came across this really cool zip code map. "A cool zip code map?" you say. Yes, 'tis so.

Go to: Zipdecode

Click on the map and start typing a zip code. You can hit the backspace key to undo digits. Cool, heh? Sure, the fun lasts only slightly longer than a stick of Juicy Fruit, but I thought it was cool enough to pass along.

Later!

Ah, I feel fed this morning because of that. That little page led me to processing.org and many interesting links to content rendered by the processing language, of which I'd never heard.

Here are some interesting results in movie format from a yahoo coder who used processing and reverse IP lookups to show bursts of searching on different search phrases internationally. Cool stuff.
