Yelp Introduces Hipster Heat Maps So You Can Avoid/Join

yelp-hipster-heatmap.jpg

Yelp recently rolled out a 'word map' feature for major world cities that creates heat maps based on a particular term to show you where the most restaurants/bars/coffee shops/etc. associated with that term are located. The media is just running with the whole hipster thing because that's a lot more sensational than creating heat maps based on 'noodles'. Although I just discovered if you make maps based on 'sketchy', 'run-down' and 'recent shooting', my apartment seems to be at the epicenter.

Thanks to E V I L A R E S, who's so evil he intentionally mislabels restaurants on Yelp.

    this sucks, it'll just make them spread out when they realize how mainstream their neighborhood is. let them cluster in blissful ignorance, now they'll be moving out by me instead :(
