  Business reviews on Google Maps
Google are trying to incorporate review technology into Google Maps but they're doing it in a really haphazard way. Have a look at the entry for Liverpool's Everyman Theatre below:
Everyman Theatre on Google Maps

The Everyman is given a review of 0.5 out of 5, pretty damning. Click on the link 'one review' and you are taken to this bland tourist information page on Enjoy England. It's not a review in the conventional sense and it certainly isn't negative.

Interestingly, there's also an option to write your own review. To write a review you need to sign in using your Google Account and write at least 100 characters. These user-generated reviews may become increasingly important for businesses and cultural organisations in the near future.

  London Land Grab
London Land Grab
It's not often you find anything of interest in The Independent's internet coverage (today's feature was the typically challenging - 'Why are sites so poor?'), but their round-up of googlemaps included this fundraising site from Capital Radio.

London Land Grab encourages site visitors to buy London landmarks ranging from shops and pubs for a fiver to parks and stadia for £50 a go. It's a great, simple idea and clicking round on the map shows that plenty of people have bought their spot.

What does your money go to?

* £5 will pay for a young carer to go the cinema/pantomime/London Aquarium etc etc
* £15 will pay for a child to have a present this Christmas
* £25 will pay for a music therapist to work with terminally-ill children in hospital
* £30 will pay for 200 young victim of crime leaflets to be printed
* £50 will pay for 2 hours of sessional counselling for a child affected by bereavement
* £100 will pay for a specially-trained clown doctor to pay a visit to sick children in hospital

  Flickrvision - live photos on a world map
Flickrvision - live photos on a world map
Fantastic, I've been waiting for this ever since I heard about Twittervision. The same developer, Dave Troy, has done the same thing with Flickrvision. Photos uploaded to Flickr with geodata are displayed live on a googlemap generated map of the world. I could watch this stuff for hours.

  Liverpool Biennial 2006 Map
Another googlemap experiment, the Liverpool Biennial 2006 map. Things to note:

The map draws together listings information from various sources. There are certainly mistakes and holes in these sources that will be repeated on this map.

The map will also contain its own mistakes.

The map is unofficial.

The map is not associated with any particular strand of the Biennial.

The map has not been tested for cross-browser compatibility.

The map is not comprehensive.

The map works like any other google map, you can zoom in and out, drag the map around, switch to satellite (photo) view or a hybrid.

I'm off on holiday for the next week, so no fixes for 7 days...
