    Geek's Map To Britain

    So, I was planning a little tour of Scotland this summer, and thought I'd check out which Geeks Guides I could have a mosey around whilst I was there.

    It turns out that on the Geeks Guide to Britain page, (https://www.theregister.co.uk/science/geeks_guide/) none of the article summaries mentioned whereabouts the article was set: I was going to have to grep through each article to find out.

    And if I was going to do that, I figured I might as well record where they all were, and bung 'em on a map for easy future reference.

    So without further ado, I present the Geek's Map to Britain:

    http://www.gypsythief.org.uk/GeeksMapToBritain/ *

    All the little pins are clickable-on, and include a link to the relevant article on El Reg.

    Oh, and bonus points for spotting the easter egg (although it's quite obvious!)

    * Don't worry, hosted on Git Hub Pages, quite safe...

      Hi, Would you consider adding extra content of interest to Geeks? I'm thinking about things like The Cambridge Computing History museum, Horniman, Victorian Steam & pumping stations, stuff like that.

    As two sites are mentioned in the Geek Guide, I'd be tempted to give this article two pin's:

    1. Wireless Huts at the Lizard:

    https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Lizard+Wireless+Station/@49.9639043,-5.1968011,16z/data=!4m12!1m6!3m5!1s0x486b2bb7c265538f:0x1882d4bdfa2c86bd!2sLizard+Wireless+Station!8m2!3d49.9635938!4d-5.1915976!3m4!1s0x486b2bb7c265538f:0x1882d4bdfa2c86bd!8m2!3d49.9635938!4d-5.1915976

    2. Marconi Monument at Poldhu

    https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/The+Marconi+Centre/@50.0303428,-5.2660445,17z/data=!4m12!1m6!3m5!1s0x486b2829cda1b401:0x426a8adcc66bf349!2sThe+Marconi+Centre!8m2!3d50.0303428!4d-5.2638558!3m4!1s0x486b2829cda1b401:0x426a8adcc66bf349!8m2!3d50.0303428!4d-5.2638558

    Generally, I'm impressed with your efforts.
