Google Maps of the World of Hello World

Google maps now allows the ability to create your own maps. The title link is a map of the major programming languages in use in the world. So it’s like lots of little hellos around the world. Cute. Looks like Africa, India, Australia, and South America have a lot of catch up to do. They don’t do all the languages in the world, but Japan would also have quite a few if it listed all the variants in the Lisp family.

It’s also noticeable that the coasts dominate with programming languages. UIUC’s gotta step up.

But most significantly, making your own maps has been a long time coming, and I would have originally thought they’d leave mappr.comFrappr alone in this field. But I think it makes strategic sense for them, especially if they make it easy to post maps that people create.

  1. It’s a map of where each language was created. (also, boo title links.)I wonder how this will affect sites like the gmap pedometer.
