posted earlier this week (Where the Hell is Matt), I found a way to show my current location to my readers through Navizon, an add-on for the iPhone. I'm always looking for ways to improve the interaction between me and the readers and since I'm in Israel, the most exciting country in the world, you will be able to follow me in my tours around the country or just in my daily schedule.
I'm probably one of the first bloggers to do that (most people never heard of Navizon and those who did are apparently afraid of stalking..) and although I'm a little afraid about exposing myself this much in the web, I think it's worth a try.
Navizon locates me in Google Maps but the annoying thing is that Google doesn't have detailed maps of Israel (which is very odd since they have offices here in Haifa and Sergei Brin is actually Jewish..), not even city names, so you will need to use your brains to understand where I am. But if you click in Satellite View, in Google Maps, there's a chance you will recognize the area around me. Right now I'm in Rechavia for example, and it's not difficult to recognize it if you have been here before.
For some reason you must zoom out as much as you can in Google Maps (press the - button many times) in order to spot me.
See you in Google Maps!
