dollar_bill.gifI wandered down to the vending area at work on Friday and I found a dollar bill sitting on top of one of the snack machines. Stamped on it was "wheresgeorge.com" -- so I had to find out what this was.

Well, it turns out that the Where's George? site bills itself (pun intended) as "The Great American Dollar Bill Finder."

The idea is that you can enter the serial code and unique ID info from the dollar bill into the database and see where it's been tracked. The tracking isn't anything scientific or government-sponsored, it's just folks like you and me putting the data into the website. But, it's amusing when you see one.

It's ironic to think that there are lots of folks freaked out about the (false) idea of the government tracking those $20 bills in your pocket using the little plastic strip in them, but other folks are more than happy to input the location of their cash into a publicly accessible website.

Holmz, the name of this website is "GearBits" -- see it in the upper left hand corner if you scroll all the way up to the top of this page? It is located at WWW.GEARBITS.COM. The title of this _article_ (this is a blog, see?) is "WheresGeorge.com" since I was writing about finding a dollar bill with that message printed on it.

The actual WWW.WHERESGEORGE.COM website is somewhere else, run by someone I don't know (I've nothing to do with it) -- type WWW.WHERESGEORGE.COM into your browser and go there. You might notice that it's a different site altogether.

I am now closing comments on this blog entry since there is no further reason for commenting.
