I’m having a bit of a hard time embracing this, but I’ve been trying not to be such a PIA curmudgeon lately. I know. It’s not my best look, but I can try, right? Meetups I guess can be fun. Group rides? Not so much, but that’s just me.
Anyway, Travis Gintz at http://www.evfr.net has apparently discovered ZeeMaps and he’s got a bunch of electric motorcycle owners to register their locations on it. I guess that’s cool, though he’s trying to get people to post their contact information on the locations, and I’m not at all sure what security measures have been taken to prevent just about any data mining from happening. It is kind of cool though, and I’m kind of interested in the fact that the DIY crowd is still in the lead for signups.
It’s really a market research guy’s dream come true, but if you’re cool with that, I’d encourage you to add your own stats. What the hell? What’s another Viagra ad coming to your inbox anyway?

Yes. And there can only be one.
We’ll see what comes in for spam… if it’s too much you can just remove your email and presumably port that through your website or EV Album page or something, but it is kind of fun to see how many bikes there are within a nice riding range of the home base. Even for a cranky old bitch like me.
Well then. It appears that once you set up an account with ZeeMaps, you can’t delete it. Hell, even Facebook lets you delete your account now. Based on the site AccountKiller, all you can do is remove your information and remove any third-party login permissions. But, there’s this:
Not too impressive. At the very least, I think it’d be a good idea for the owners to post some sort of caveat about the private information posted.
It gets a “Blacklisted” rating from AccountKiller.
