...here's some more pirate stuff: a live piracy tracker mashup using Google maps. The heavy concentrations of attacks are on predictable choke points: the Horn of Africa and the Malacca Straits. But pirates are hitting as nearby as Port-au-Prince, where pirates apparently boarded a cargo vessel in June before being driven off by the crew.

Update: this'll teach me to post before reading the ol' blog -- Brad isn't off his game at all. Carry on, carry on.
