The ever-fascinating GeekSugar blog points to an interesting ground-up Internet experiment in user-generated information called SignalMap. SignalMap shows you the cell phone reception for various carriers in your zip code. You can enter your own reception to help build a clearer picture and map for cell reception in the areas in which you frequent.
From where I now sit, I have one bar of reception. However, rather than simply moping and whining about Verizon’s coverage, I can now map it on SignalMap so we all can get a clear picture of the reception we get, even if we are not getting clear reception. The site is very beta, so we’ll have to see how it grows. Power to the people.
