Going ballistic

I came about a couple of sites and plugins which dealt with geographic coordinates, to draw maps of blogs near your location or add the geographic position of commenters. There is even a special META tag to go into the head-section of a site, which lists its coordinates. The name of the tag is ICBM.
Being born in the late Sixties, the abbreviation ICBM gives a strange ring to my ears. In my “youth”, it stood for Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile – and I guess the definition is still valid. Well, considering this, the word Geotargeting makes sense again…
