I’ll be honest, I think the concept is excellent and we need to push it even harder, but I think Google Maps is limited in what it can do for us. I suggest looking and seeing what’s out there. I envision a more "social networking" type map service that we can use. It might even be Google Map powered but it will have all the bells and whistles that make it more user-friendly.
Frapper is a good place to start. In my browsing I want to say I came across another site that seemed very intuitive, but it was a while ago (before this project) and I can’t remember where I saw it.
Look around a little bit. I think we can come up with something workable.
If there’s nothing better out there than Google Maps, then we will make it work. I’ll personally send out a mass-mail to get everyone to log on and maybe even try to get it endorsed on the front page.
Thanks so much for the help. And I’ll be getting you that mailing list soon. Just have to put it in a better format. Do you use Thunderbird? I can send it to you as a Thunderbird contacts file.
Let me know.

Great comment! I couldn’t have said it any better…
I will reply to some of the most recent posts separately, but I would like to ask everyone who is bringing up discussion about other projects to start new threads in the appropriate folders. Since this seems to be a very popular thread, you are welcome to also post an update with a link to your project thread here as Yoshi did above.
This is an attempt to keep the structure of the forums as organized as possible.

Thanks for the update Yoshi. I will get you the updated list soon. I actually have to add several people to my database, so I’ll have it to you after I do that.
Oh and Chris/Ron, I saw the gadget on the front page and I must say, "very cool!" It immediately brought to mind Yoshi’s project.
Good work, Yosh.
Wow, Coop! Very impressive.
Please keep us updated.
If you wouldn’t mind, please start a separate thread about this and other acivities you are involved in.
Yeah, definitely a good idea. Other’s have suggested Meetup as well and I’d love to get something like that started.
All we need is a point man for it.
Yeah, Chistopher, might as well post them in the same thread you were posting the others. If for no other reason than for completion’s sake.
No sense in wasting good intellectual productivity!
Thanks for the update. I think you meant the videos have been up for 6 weeks!
Might want too post future updates as a reply to this thread from now on just to keep the folder from getting too cluttered…
Good to see you!
I asked Ron about that and his official position is that it prevents people from changing the meaning of a thread by significantly editing or deleting the top post.
I do agree that we need a better file management system…
Maybe we can find a free off-site file sharing server or something. It’s not something I have looked into but there might be something out there we could use…
Does someone want to check into this?
Great idea. Maybe we should start a thread where everyone can post what they percieve as significant milestones as well… YouTube launch, Facebook Launch, etc. might also go in there…
