This is the first time I've seen this done. Pretty cool. Fan geo-location.
Over 1.4 million unique users have downloaded the free Nine Inch Nails album The Slip, according to the band, since they posted it in the MP3 format on May 5. To give people an interesting way to see where the album was most popular, Nine Inch Nails has posted a Google Earth file that lets you rotate and zoom in on the planet, with red lines emanating outward like gigantic skyscrapers in the spots where the album was downloaded the most.
