From whence do our readers hail?

I’m often amazed when a comment on the site will give a local perspective to what, for me, may be a very distant story. And I’d love to know just how far this site reaches.

I’ll update the map above and color in each nation that is represented, so please give us a hello from your part of the world. I’d love to hear from infrequent commenters as well; just a one word comment to tell us what nation you live in would be great.
