It's also a testament to the limited value of physically locating people
by internet addresses - If you zoom in on the San Fransico bay area, and
click on the southern most bubble (south of San Jose), you'll see the
entry for the Mountain View postal code (94043) - a massive list which
contains mostly gmail.com accounts, but also contains accounts with .de
.ca .uk .pl .it .tw and .za domains. I doubt all of the people in that
list live in sunny California, let alone in Mountain View proper.
