Friday Funny: A Map for Finding Lost Mittens

It’s Valentine’s Day, and it’s been a long winter in most parts of the country, so in the interest of staying warm and rightful pairs sticking together, here’s a website that lets people map the locations of lost mittens around New York City.

PJ Vogt shares news of a, probabably-not-totally-serious, website called i found your mitten. Here’s how Vogt describes the site: “To report an orphaned mitten, you either tag a photo with #ifoundyourmitten on Instagram, or email it to [email protected]. When someone accesses the site, they can see lost mittens by map or by tiled photo.”

Maybe the site can also serve as a reminder to always allow for the new and fun possibilities that maps and geo-tagging create.
