I didn't think the post that i forwarded was irrelevant at all. I
think these kinds of massive local annotation projects with a "civic
information" focus are totally relevant to what people may want to do
with an open guide.
The wireless connection for me is because i worked on a lot of
prototypes connecting a guide to local information portals on
community wireless networks, where each node knows where it is thus
what information on the guide is around it.
crschmidt also has been working on some GPRS / cellphone based
prototypes for talking to the guide after a rough estimate of location
based on shapes inferred from 'cellstumbling' mobile phone networks.
SOrry if posting local events to a broadly spatially dsistrbuted
people most of whom cannot go to them is inappropriate to people here.
Another nice example of people getting together to map and annotate
collectively and intensely in a short space of time, is the upcoming
openstreetmap workshop where they are attempting to map the Isle of
Wight in as dense and complete detail as possible within a couple of
(and i can't go to that either, it sucks). This will involve a lot of
geoannotated flickr pictures and so on.
