People Worth Knowing Right Now

GM ran this article last year during a heat wave, and with the onset of another stretch of unbearable heat, he decided to run it again.

It’s incredibly hot outside already. And there’s no better way to cool off than a dip in a pool. But what if you don’t have a pool, and the public pools aren’t open? What you do is get to know someone with a pool. And it turns out that the city helps you identify whom to befriend.

Among many other data sets, the city keeps a record of all the pools in the city. And better yet, they keep the data in mapable form. So a couple quick clicks on Google, and voila, a map of all the pools in Georgetown. All the blue squares above are pools. Now you just need to figure out how to chat these neighbors up. Or just jump their fence when you know they’re not around (kidding!)
