I'm on this map, too.

Excellent!  Blogwise has released a beta of a feature I'd hoped would be native to Google Maps.

Blogwise's utility overlays location metadata onto the Google maps, displaying the locations of blogs.  Multimap has offered the same thing for several months, but let's face it, with the clarity of the mapping and seamless scrolling, Google has totally blown Multimap out of the water – it's not just 'better', it's in an entirely different league.

As I said, I'd prefer Google to develop this themselves, potentially using location metadata provided by sites in the vast Google database rather than only the tiny subset registered with a specific directory like Blogwise. Credit's due to Blogwise for what they have managed, though. Very well done!
