- Gina's tip of the week:
- Jeff's number of the week:
- Leo's tool of the week:
There is an unwritten law that says if you open a new hair salon then you have to give it a silly name, preferably using some kind of pun.
In an effort to prove that this is a universal unwritten law microformats.dk has created this worldwide map of hairdressers and hair salons. The map includes many fine examples of punning titles, such as Hairway to Heaven, Clip Joint, Sophisticuts, Hair Today and Streaks Ahead.
There is a serious point to the map as it provides an example of how you can use the OpenStreetMap API to provide data for a Google Map application. For this map of hair salons microformats.dk has selected 500 of the over 20,000 hairdressers in the Open Street Map database.
