So one of the original poster childs of neogeography has folded – Platial have bit the dust! Geocommons have rescued some of the data (but I still couldn’t find my pennies there yet).
Way back in 2007, I used Platial for recording where I found lucky pennies on the streets. (Nowadays I use Flickr to record lucky pennies)
A year later, and 2008 saw Platial awarding me a StoryTelling Award – a t-shirt which I’m currently wearing whilst writing this post.
You can get the Lucky Pennies Map as a KMZ, or maybe from the page on Platial itself, but that page won’t be around forever.
