Quite a few did the meme (wrote about the meme? participated in the meme? propagated the meme? What's the correct term here?) and tagged other people, and so forth. Anyhow, it's neat to see how the meme propagated in just one month and to read about their hometowns.

Apparently, there is also a kite festival in Moses Lake.
Olle Zackrisson of Cool Finds wrote about Stockholm, Sweden (you have to scroll to the 19 April 2006 entry, there is no permalink as far as I can find):
