Just one of those stupid "I can't find it!" questions - does anyone remember a Youtube video of a map being drawn whilst narrated by a guy from a country in northern Europe who explained what other countries seemed like to people from his country? It seemed sort of dumb, I know - like "this is X country, they only eat salad... this is Y country, they are very dirty and like parrots..." - and the map was a silly badly-drawn MS Paint type thing. I know I saw it on Metafilter somewhere, but I'm also certain I didn't see it in an FPP... and search is turning up nothing.

The map portion of jobs isn't loading. The job location of this post
seems to be the cause.

I could have sworn there was a Metafilter post that linked to a really fantastic free website for learning geography, but I can't find it. Or maybe it was commented in an AskMefi thread? It wasn't this one
, though that's a good website too. Anybody know what I'm talking 'bout?

A bit like a dandelion gone wrong.
is the site. Some results are definitely interesting
though. I wish you could click on a node and see its address.

I'd like to use the "near users" feature to see users near a given coordinate. [more inside]

I recently posted a link
, and in it I happened to slip a 1x1 px graphic that is used by this site
to create a map of internet users. Seemed harmless enough, but in retrospect I regret having done it. It was an action of questionable ethics, and I should have avoided it. Please nix my post and accept my apologies.

Anyone have ideas on how to plot zipcode data
? I haven't found anything free or near free on ESRI
's site or at any of the ColdFusion code exchanges. Are there any opensource simple GIS programs? I could have sworn there was a mapping component to ArsDigita's ACS some group was working on. Anything in PHP? Perl?
I'm looking for something that can spit out a simple map of the US with little dots where the zip code data shows up.
