Put yourself on the map

Frappr provided a map that allowed you to see information in real time, e.g. the location of current visitors to this blog, or to list yourself and add comments and details.
Mash-up maps such as Frappr promised an innovative way to connect with people who share interests and the potential was there to use them to invite colleagues and partners to interface in a new way. It might have been a great way to draw remote contacts closer.
However, this blog post, written in 2007, outlasted Frappr. By 2010 the service appeared to have closed (this post was updated as a result, in October 2011). The original URL was http://www.frappr.com

Another option worth a look is Revolver Maps http://www.revolvermaps.com/
