The idea is that you take a map, stick a pin in it where you live, and work out a square mile with you in the centre.
Oh, Alex explains it better than I can
Anyhoo. I got to thinking. It shouldn't be that hard to set up a web thingy where you put in your postcode and get google maps to display a square mile around a point, surely.
Then you could do overlays with interesting things in that square mile - shops, museums, restaurants, interesting places etc.
I even looked for a domain, but annoyingly mysquaremile.com is
a. already taken, and
b. not being used.
I may tinker with the idea some more. But knowing me, probably forget about it almost immediately.
Oooh, juggling balls. I need some new juggling balls
