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.
The Lucky Penny map, (I’ve talked about it here) has won an Honorable Mention award in the StoryTelling category from Platial. Cheers guys!
