Where's George?

Earlier this month, I saw a /. story about a web game used to predict epidemics. The "game" they were talking about can be found at wheresgeorge.com. Basically the site is used to track American paper currency. A bill is stamped with the URL for the site, the zip code is recorded for where it is released and spent somewhere. Someone else gets the dollar for change when buying a Biggie-sized #3, sees the stamp, goes to the website, and enters the zip code of where it was found. I imagine the less-geeky among us never go to the site to record its location (many probably never notice the stamp) so they aren't tracked too consistantly.

I was moderately fascinated when I found the site, but they stopped accepting new members during the slashdotting (I assume to try to spare some hardware or bandwidth). By earlier today I had forgotten about the site.

By this afternoon I was fascinated again - I had found a stamped dollar in my perpetually empty wallet. I went to the site, joined, and logged the dollar with the site. I was the first person to record a sighting since it was first tagged and released back into the wild. Here's my dollar.

Like the memo I added to my sighting stated, I'm far away from my native Texas. I'm in Georgia for a few days and I know I didn't have any singles in my wallet until possibly when I stopped at an Atlanta Wendy's for lunch. I'm not certain that's where it came from because I also stopped for Gas, a haircut, and at least two different methods of nicotine consumption along the way before I noticed the stamped dollar.

So here's my dollar in in all it's Treo 650-induced blurriness on my Hinesville Country Inn & Suites phone:


While I was driving, I saw the clearest, most complete rainbow I've ever seen so while doing at least 10 miles over the speed limit on a wet Georgia road I wasn't familiar with I took some pictures of it with the Treo. They didn't come out great and it's too bad I wasn't able to get the whole thing in the frame:
