This week’s winner of the Site of the week contest was Where’s George. Where’s George is a fascinating experiment in tracking currency. I originally heard about the site 3 months ago, when I received a one dollar bill with a www.wheresgeorge.com stamp across the front of it. When I put my bill into the website, my where’s george “parent” Pam told me that she had originally received the bill from a bank in Ashland, MO.
Since then I’ve been hooked and have now entered 47 bills for a total of $484. While I’ve only had one of my bills discovered, I’m confident that over time my hit ratio should rise closer to the average of 10%. Looking over some of the user statistics it appears that it usually takes around 45 days for a bill to get discovered. Congratulations to Where’s George on winning the first site of the week contest.
