That’s A *Lot* Of Data

I was reading an article on Slashdot yesterday in which the author claimed that Google had lost its innovative edge and was now focused purely on “chasing the consumer”. Being Slashdot, most of the commenters agreed. One particular comment mentioned something I had not heard of before: Google Timeline.

To my surprise, I found on my Timeline 428 places that I have apparently visited in the past 5 years, all presented in a nice browsable Google map interface.
