Here’s a very neat mashup of GoogleEarth and Twitter for ethnography (it’s in French). @thiteu sent me the link on Twitter.

This work is a simulation of a 3 dimensional Geography using GOOGLE EARTH and of a social signal using TWITTER in ethnography nowadays.

Cool? Yeah. Imagine Second Life sort of re-enactments of the whole world based on Twitter graffiti. Is seems like an extrapolation of what services like Brightkite and Qik are offering. Interesting possibilities to build into ethnographic research. They should be watching this space!
