What do you do when you are on a quiet night shift at the BBC?
If you're Stuart Pinfold, you create a mash-up using Google maps, which plots BBC reporters and correspondent locations around the world and connects them to stories on the BBC News website.
Want to know who's covering stories in Sao Paolo, Brazil? The map shows you that it's Gary Duffy, and you can click to see stories he has done from his patch and stories about the location in general.
Stuart works in the Traffic department at the BBC - taking calls from reporters, correspondents and freelancers around the world and then routing them to studios for live broadcasts or to record their radio reports.
He told me he "knows HTML" and was "bored on night shift and thought I'd experiment with Google maps".
It's a great tool - perhaps more of us should have quiet night shifts...
He has sent the map to one of the big bosses at BBC News - so who knows, perhaps his map will become a tool on the BBC News website, just like the live stats page.
