I think moblogging isn't half as fun if it's not coupled with geolocalization. I've set up a world map of blogging activity here : http://www.geoping.net/world but it's rather american / european centered at the moment. Sure there must be some more active weblogs in Japan!!! My demand, for the 1IMC, is that you think about a way to automatically include latitude/longitude data when you moblog, so that building little maps where mobloggers are plotted as little dots like GeoPing would be easy. -- StephaneLeSolliec
