<h2>So Many Places, So Little Time</h2><br><br>I seldom own a book that makes my fellow geeks here at PC World go wild when I show it to them, but John Graham-Cumming has done the trick with "[[xref:http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596523206/|The Geek Atlas: 128 Places Where Science and Technology Come Alive|The Geek Atlas]]," available in both dead-tree and digital formats. <br><br>After getting permission from O'Reilly, his publisher, to feature the book in a slide show on PCWorld.com, I passed "The Geek Atlas" around the office, soliciting advice on which locations to feature. I had room for 10 to 12 choices. I got back yellow stickies on more than 50 described in the book. <br><br>In this slide show, I've concentrated on technology centers, which didn't give me room to discuss such fascinating places as the Sound Mirrors of Dungeness, England; The Gutenberg Museum in Mainz, Germany; or The Escher Museum of The Hague, Netherlands--among many other places described that have more of a science or art bent to them. <br><br>Here's just a sampling of the contents of this clever book, which not only gives you a description, photo, and Web site URL for each location but also supplies the longitude and latitude so that you can pinpoint exactly where in the world each place sits. <br><br>Let's start with the World War II code breakers of the United Kingdom.
