Geohashing

24 May 2008

One of my hobbies is reading web comics. There’s some great stuff out there. One that I enjoy more often than not is xkcd. The geek jokes alone are of epic quality. Occasionally, something he mentions in the comic intrigues me though. Today’s post is one of those times. A recent comic (the penultimate one, as of this posting) was about geohashing. I’ve heard of geocaching before, and this is kind of a geek version of that, though it lets us get our geek on and meet people, as he’s designated a time (Saturdays at 4:00 pm) for xkcd readers to visit that day’s geohash coordinates and meet up.

We might have to do that one of these weeks and see if there’s anyone else in my area that is geeky that way.
