Considering the unreliability of the timestamp discussed elsewhere which could make you question the truthfulness of my documentation of the social web I've made a map at Google Earth for you. Geomapping cannot be wrong and I have pinned down my whereabouts in the real world. In reality. So now, you can rest assured that everything your hear comes straight from the horse's mouth!
But first, you have to go to [url=http://earth.google.com/]http://earth.google.com/[/url] and download Google Earth. It is quite a heavy download and might take some time. After you have installed it on your hard drive, download the file Here_I_live.kmz.zip
(Windows users right click the file), click the downloaded file and Google Earth will take you to where I live, work and breathe. Of course, if you already have Google Earth installed, just download the file.

Although I've never really understood the need for a 3D space that stages the 1D world of Second Life
, I took a tour to SL today. Created an avatar, downloaded the software and teleported myself to the House of Sweden
- an afterthought: it might be a good idea to read up on Second Life in the Second Life Wiki
before entering SL, or else you'll probably end up fiddling with all the menus and buttons, which I did.
I met three avatars there to network with. They talked about what a boring place it was and how they were stuck in a place they couldn't get out of as teleporting inside SL didn't work on this very day. Couldn't join the conversation though, as I fumbled around among the menus. Clicked too much too fast and SL crashed. When I returned to the House of Sweden a little bit later, the place was empty, no not empty, desolate. See the snapshot of my avatar before House of Sweden
