Lance's TextBox

Scoble is pointing to Rod Edwards' BlockRocker.

It sounds interesting. Scoble didn't give it much of a detailed description, but it looks like BlockRocker lets you point to a Google map and then helps you geocode Flickr photos, blog posts, delicious bookmarks, and YouTube videos. I would look more, but I keep getting errors in Firefox. I'll check back later with IE7.

On the subject of geotagging, with a couple dozen lines of RSSBus script I've created a little web app that will pin-point geocoded feed locations on a Yahoo, Virtual Earth, or Google Earth map (I'll post more about this soon). So if you have a feed full of items with georss elements, you can view each of those coordinates on a map at the click of a button.

It would be neat to apply this kind of thing to a feed of items for sale on Ebay, or a feed of deliveries to be made, or a feed of customers in QuickBooks.
