I'm Paradigm, Brandon, or just "That guy in the green hat." I've been an avid fan of Munroe's work since something like xkcd/5x and always thought the geohashing was a fascinating idea but never really considered trying it out myself. Was happy to find that Seattle's graticule covers the entire city so I'm excited to give these a shot from time to time.
