Center of the (Google) Universe

Wired is running an article on the "center of the universe" according to Google. The upshot behind the whole article is that Google Maps starts out at a point near the center of the United States. If you don't change the extents and zoom in fully, you end up in Coffeyville, KS. Coffeyville is neither the geodetic center of North America or the lower 48, so the choice is somewhat odd. Not terribly useful, but a neat intersection of geospatial stuff and culture.
