Where's George

Tuesday, November 20, 2007

As I was putting up my tip money last night, I spotted some writing on one of the bills. It was a $10 bill with "www.wheresgeorge.com" written along the bottom. Curious, I logged on to the website.

The United States Currency Tracking Project is trying to--ahem--track currency. Basically, when you receive a marked bill, you go to the website and enter its denomination and serial number and where you got it. You're then given a report that shows where it's been before it got to you. If you're interested in tracking it after you spend it, you can create an account and regularly check its progress. I won't be doing that.

My bill has only been tracked at one other place: Crystal Lake, Illinois. Read all about my bill's travels here.
