Work From Home on Google Maps

National Work From Home Day

Apparently in the UK today is National Work From Home Day. The day is meant to encourage people to work from home, instead of commuting to their usual place of work, in order to promote smarter working practices, such as flexible, remote and mobile working.

To promote the day Speed Communications have created a Google Maps mashup that shows all Twitter messages tagged #NWFHD. If Twitter users add the first of half of their post code to the tag they will then be shown on the map, e.g. “#NWFHD WC2H”. The map updates every 30 seconds.
