Getting closer...

A year or so ago I put forth the idea of linking wikipedia articles to a location. We're now officially one step closer to that reality. A French company has put the entire wikipedia on on a mobile device. All that's needed is to hook up all of the articles with coordinates (Mt. Rushmore, Pacific Ocean), and link them so they show up on the GPS map.

My money says somebody will do it by year's end. And then the whole lid will come off of this bubbling pot, and we'll see some real content-to-location love.
