Tim Hibbard CEO for EnGraph software

I really like the MapStats provided by BlogFlux. They provide a Google Map with the location of people that have hit my blog as well as referrals and pages visited.

I'd like to see them open the data up a bit, they have been messing with RSS a bit, but it's not quite right yet. I'd rather have a web service where I could query the hits by a certain date range. That would be cool. Then I could overlay the data and see if the same people that hit my blog also hit Where's Tim and/or EnGraph.

That's what the web is all about...do something cool, and then give other people an avenue to do the same thing.

The unfortunate reality is that opening all data via RSS would be simply too much. Some blogs have daily log sizes that reach 90 megs in size. Parsing the data for an RSS feed would cause a lot of stress, when really maybe 0.01% of people would use it.

I agree that RSS would not be the way to open it up. I was thinking of using a web service
