And I thought my job was cool

In the latest issue of Fortune magazine, there is a pretty mind blowing article on a guy named John “Winter” Smith who is attempting to visit each and ever Starbucks location.  I find myself joking frequently with friends that there must be a building code in Seattle decreeing you should not have to walk more than 50 feet to find a Starbucks–sometimes less.

This guy is pretty cool.  He’s set up his own site at  My favorite quote is a note about a store he visited in Bellevue, “By the time I visited this store, in late 2001, there were plenty of intersections throughout the continent boasting multiple Starbucks locations. But as near as I can remember, this is one of the few, excluding shopping malls, in which the two Starbucks locations are in the same outdoor strip mall.”
