Toying around with backbone.js

Toying around with Backbone.js At $work, we've been using more and more backbone.js  to create a more responsive front end experience and help the dev team manage the code. I like backbone.js and find that its it is very helpful to seperate data and code on the client. But I've found that it challenges me to think in different ways. I find it helpful to create an app so I did :) Introducing Brewers Radio Finder Over the years, i've often driven between Milwaukee and St. Paul, MN. While on the drive, there are areas of the state where finding the close Brewer's radio station is tough and figuring out which station is the closest to you is difficult when looking at the map from Brewers Radio network . Am I currently closer to Reedsburg or Portage? The app is pretty simple, you can type in or give it your current location and it will show the 3 closest Brewers radio stations to you.  You can check it out at .
