One of the people that I asked to test out uencounter.me when we first launched the closed Beta was an old friend of mine who had been in the US Navy. I knew he had seen much of the world and thought it would be interesting to see those travels ‘pinned’ to a map. He began dropping pins in earnest. Last week, I happened to look at his map again (we are LINKed) and realized that he has 99 pins! Just by looking at his map I realized things about him that I never knew. To that extent, it validated how cool uencounter.me really is. I’ve known this friend for almost 30 years and never realized the extent of his travels.
Out of curiosity I overlayed his map onto the maps of several other people with whom I am LINKed and discovered that my friend grew up in a town very close to where my brother vacations every year. It amazes me every time that I realize how small the world really is and how connected we all really are! This is just interesting information really … very entertaining! By permission, I am adding a picture of what my friend’s map looks like. Why not take a few minutes and drop a pin on yours today?!
