Specifically this solution works using the GPS in his Nextel phone, it broadcasts his location to Engraph which in turn drives a map produced by Google Maps. Want to know where Tim Hibbard is right now? Track him at Where’s Tim?.
After playing around with the site for a few minutes I had a bit of a “Beavis and Butthead” moment. I kept sitting there staring at the screen saying to myself “move damn-it, move!”. But he didn’t. In this digital world how soon I forgot this is a human we are talking about here and I wasn’t playing some video game. Thankfully you can use the “Get History” button to see where he has been.
