We Have Alpha  
We've gone live -- the web site I've been working on is now open (albiet in alpha). So, interested folks can poke around.

We're not announcing this widely, of course, and if you're interested in checking it out, we're certainly looking for feedback. We'll be adding a lot of functionality down the road that isn't really there yet, but for the very short term we're mostly trying to get what we do have stable and robust. So, check it out, and feel free to sign up and play around:

http://www.mapbuzz.com/

For a few ideas of what to do, here's a map I'm working on (for what I'm trying to do, there's a discussion. The map is best viewed -- of course -- in hybrid mode for the pretty satellite imagery). Or check out my lame profile -- feel free to friend me if you join up, of course.

Big, clean, very web 2.0. I'm surprised you didn't call it mappr or buzzr or something.

Fun, check out the map uploaded by inatangle, and you'll see things of relevance for my live journal account.

BTW, it doesn't work in Safari...... or my old version of same. I had to use Firefox to get it to show the maps. And--it shows a map of Easthampton for your map... I have a suspicion that's not right, right?

jugduf is a map fiend and I'm sure he's going to join up. (I usually refer to him in my lj as the tall one.) He's got big plans for MapBuzz, but I'll let him tell you himself.

It looks for your location based on your IP. Fairly accurate for metropolitan home internet providers, wildly innacurate for rural areas and a lot of companies.

As for Safari -- we don't currently support it. IE is shaky enough as it is, but we try.
