Hey, just thought I'd plug my new favorite obsession (ok, maybe that's going a little far), Wikimapia. If you like maps and Wikipedia, this is kind of where they intersect. It's a volunteer-based site that lets users "describe the world" - ie you mark different geographic locations of various kinds (buildings, parks, regions, etc.) tag them, write about them, converse about them, etc. So far I've just been marking places and correcting ones I see that aren't up to date, are incorrect, etc. I'm concentrating on areas I know best, of course, like NOVA, and what I've found is there aren't a whole lot of active users adding and editing stuff around here. So I thought I'd put the call out to have some others come help. The site is at Wikimapia - Let's describe the whole world!. Thanks!
