America’s Bloggiest Cities and Neighborhoods

Steven Berlin Johnson, of Everything Bad Is Good For You fame, has been at work recently crunching numbers to come up with America's most blog-tastic locales. The results may surprise you--based on "placeblogs," Boston leads the cities chart and Clinton Hill, Brooklyn tops neighborhoods.

One aspect of Web 2.0 that seems to be just taking off now is geotagging. Yes, we have Google Earth and the ancien regime of Mapquest. But more and more people are uploading geotagged photos, blog posts, et cetera, making all sorts of new projects possible from the 9/11 Archive to HousingMaps.com. How long before geotagging becomes as ubiquitous as blogging is today?
