Seriously cool....

Have just been emailed this link by a friend, it's something called WikipediaVision. It's using Google Map's API and shows you, almost in real-time, who is editing what Wikipedia page and where they are in the world.
That is so deeply cool it is bordering on sub-zero. I could spend hours watching it.

when you log on to flickrvision, there's also the option to do the same thing with twitter too.

Make sure you check the '3D globe' option for maximum coolness...
