Esri Super Bowl FanMap Goes Viral (more or less)

Could this end up being the most popular GIS-powered app to date? The Esri Super Bowl FanMap has gone viral, at least as viral as GIS ever goes. I just happened to notice it come up in a handful of tweets last night while online for only a short while. The interesting part was looking at the tweet authors, and realizing they have no association with GIS or even mapping. It seems that while GIS and geography might matter, football matters more.

Here's the map in case you're one of the few in the Esri camp that haven't seen it. Click to open it and cast your vote (and beer preference).

The app is powered by ArcGIS Server and is built using the ArcGIS API for Flex.
