I was looking at a heat map of Melbourne, clearly indicating by the glowing red bits where children weren't immunised. Some parents think they know better than centuries of science and medicine. I will leave the adjectives out.
I looked at a heat map of London children who play freestyle in London parks. No, you won't find a kiddie snuggled up in their cubby under a tree on Hampstead Heath. It used to happen but does not now.
I then looked at a heat map telling of internet and Tweeting activity when the Lindt Cafe in Sydney siege took place and murders happened. There was lots of activity in Britain, India, China. To be expected. I forgot to look at Canada, but I did look at that US. I was surprised. I can only conclude that we are well connected to New Youk and the east coast of the US, but it seems we are of little of interest to San Francisco and Los Angeles. The east coast of the US, New York etc was aglow with red but just small blobs on the west coast of the US.
I did not read any interpretation of the stats but take it from m me, we Australians are on the east coast of the US in larger numbers and the east coast is more comfortable for us, no matter how much movies tell us of wonderfulness of the west coast.
Later edit: I am not sure how these stats are recorded. Could the US oddness be because of time differences between the US east and west coasts?
