For those interested, here is a map of the world with dots representing our users.

Warning, it will be slow for dialup users!

HEY! Change my color to blue please;) .

Seriously, that's a cool map, especially how it shows the location of people on-line.

MoveOn does the same thing when we have our online strategy and planning sessions for global domination.

I am not sure I show up. The dot in the midwest seems to far south for me in the on-line map.

How are our locations being determined?

It determines the lat/long by your IP address.
If folks go through a proxy or some ISP's (like AOL) it might not find yah.

Very cool!

Now, if you could just have it so that when you mouse-over a dot, it would show who it is...

Why are all the dots conservative? Why is my dot not blue?

Unfortunately, they also don't show as well. Ah, yes. Moderates just don't get noticed :lol:

Frankly, the red worked better. Good socialist color, by the way.
