I use Bloglines for my feed reading for the usual server-based reasons (multi-platform, no need to sync, etc.) and for a lark I thought I'd check out Ideamatt subscribers. One aspect of the results that was interesting was that some people include their weather in their subscriptions. (Bloglines provides this as a special feed.) Here are those that had a Bloglines weather subscription, and the place:Blogger and Bloglines is a push-pin map showing locations (e.g., who's blogging from where). The visualizations could be ala Tufte (e.g., scale states based on number of bloggers), and could include a zoom feature like the ultra cool zipcode applet. Of course after a little digging I found some sites that combine blogging and geographical location (listed below), but I'd love to hear from someone actively thinking this.
