Kewl Site Alert: NerdyDayTrips: A User-Generated Site of Global Nerd-dom

Vacation Fun Day 3: So it's the summer which means that you are either on vacation, just back from vacation or counting down towards vacation. In the spirit of my vacation this week, all of this week's posts are going to focus on office supplies and time wasters to help you while away the hours.

[Disclaimer: This site does not endorse complacency and loafing in the workplace. This site will not be help responsible for any revenue or productivity lost as a result of informing you of these lovely, addicting distractions.]

If you're in vacation-planning mode, NerdyDayTrips might be a useful resource. No matter where you're located globally, if you're looking for particularly nerdy outings to entertain the family, they seem to have something for everyone.

The site consists of an interactive map where users can add their favourite nerdy destinations, to share with the rest of the world. According to the site:
We've decided to take this one step further, and try to build a giant, inclusive, user-generated nerd map. This means we need you to tell us about your nerdy funtime destinations.
For Ottawa, users have specified the Museum of Science and Technology, the Diefenbunker, the Museum of Nature and (somewhat oddly) the North Gower Farmer's Market.

This could be a great resource if you are heading to a new city or one you've visited endless times before and need a fresh perspective. For example, we head near Toronto a few times a year and there are a bunch of sites logged in the GTA which might make for some interesting outings if we want to go exploring beyond our usual stomping grounds.

If it was still open, I would totally want to add the Circular Saw Museum in Denbigh. Alas, it is now closed... And you, would you try it? Contribute to it? What would you add?
