New on Rhizome.org: Track your Location by city!

Posted by Francis Hwang | Mon Aug 22nd 2005 12:06 p.m.

Hey everyone,

Today, the Rhizome Location feature is getting even better: We're going
to start creating city nodes, too, so people can list themselves, and
find other people, by cities.

Right now I've just turned on cities for the United States, because
that's where most of our Members live, and because it's a territory I
know well, so picking appropriate names is a little easier.

If you are a Member, and you live in the U.S., you can now go to
http://rhizome.org/preferences and choose to be searchable under one of
these cities:

Baltimore
Boston
Chicago
Denver
Los Angeles
Minneapolis
New York
Philadelphia
Portland
San Francisco
San Jose

Here, for example, is the location page for NYC:

http://rhizome.org/location.rhiz?location=us_nyc

Though right this minute, I'm the only person who's tagged myself as
living in NYC. That should change soon, I'd imagine ...

Cities will be coming for more countries soon--hopefully starting next
week, once I feel confident that the overall system works fine. In the
meantime, please start using it, and let me know if you have any
questions or problems.

Regards,
