Your Daily Dose of Porn!

…Infoporn, that is.

From the wide world of useless but intoxicatingly cool information comes two links that will make you go “Awesome! I wonder what’s happening on Twitter…”

First, we have maps made out of geotags. On Flickr, you can tag your photos so others know where you took them. Add all the tags together and you’ve got a pretty good outline of the area. Click the link to see maps of the world, the US, Europe, London, and Manhattan.

On the slightly less cool side, you can watch a video showing the expansion of Walmart from 1962 until 2006. They’ve tinged the data a nice monster-green, so it looks like you’re watching the expansion of America’s crotch-rot. I guess the idea that Walmart is some kind of STD isn’t all that unpopular. Check it out.
