Mapping BlogTalk 2.0

Various authors, Jul 08, 2004
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is very cool - what you see is an interactive map of Vienna with various hot spots on it. Click on the hot spot and you are displayed a blog post with a comment, usually describing what may be found at the hot spot. Even better, if you click 'i' on the map you can also add your own information (at least in theory - I tried to add the location of the cybercafe in the city but it didn't take). What I'm thinking, though, is that the information added to the map needs to be cumulative - that is, more than one person should be able to add to the same location. Maybe a Wiki would be a better back end for this than a blogging engine. No matter. Community mapping like this is the way of the future.
