I want to create (initially) a simple vector-based platform that is viewable 
over a phone, where people can specify where they are, perhaps with 
geocoding, also thinking of some sort of fuzzy "near" functionality would be 
cool for major landmarks, and eventually something editable over the web (I 
think editable over phone is just impractical).

Sorta like a geowiki thing I guess.


Recursivity. Call back if it happens again.
