One of the greatest things about the availability of digital cameras, photo archiving and sharing services like flickr is the fact that we can explore the unexpected treasures our friends family and even strangers have taken. Taking mini virtual vacations via someone else's photo library always quenches my voyeuristic and nosy side but it can get a little labor intensive - You know you always get stuck looking at three nearly identical photos your Aunt Betty took of her plants.

Enter Flickrvision, a mashup site that displays the pictures people across the world are posting on Flickr on a map. The collection is brilliant - ever changing, random and inspiring.

The creator has also released Twittervision, which keeps folks updated as to what people on the popular Twitter community are doing in real time.

I find Flickervision to be far more exciting and beautiful, but that's only because I'd rather see Rebecca in Myanmar enjoy a café au lait at her favorite cafe rather than read an update about it.
