My LA footsteps

So this is partially a news story, but also a look at my everyday life in a new and interesting way.

I won't go into full detail here, suffice it to say that iPhones and 3G iPads have been recording location data ever since IOS 4. It hasn't been sent anywhere, but it's kept on file. And of course, some clever programmers figured out a way to look at the data it's been collecting.(more info on the software to do this, and the news surrounding it's discovery below)

So this is the "LA" portion of where I've spent my time over the past year.
