Unfortunately only for Google Maps but still pretty cool: link (http://www.parsec.it/whereis/index.php)

Hopefully someone develops/knows something similar for GE; would be great to have a network link with all the locations of all GEH members ;-)

This is so fun, and the results are so wrong sometimes.

Try www.whitehouse.gov

Apparently the White House web site is hosted in Switzerland, in Bern.

I don't think it's wrong, another tool showed the same result. I guess they have servers around the world and depending on where you are from you will be routed to a 'area server'.

I thought about that, but I live in Toronto, hundreds of miles from Wash. D.C. I live thousands of miles from Switzerland.

Crap. Now today it shows up in Bluemount. Maybe its following Air Force One because the government is hiding!

Really strange. Going to "whitehouse.gov" shows up differently than "www.whitehouse.gov"

But I agree that "whitehouse.org" is much more realistic :-)
