    Potentially horrible idea... potentially good. Using Google Earth you can make and load packs. Packs can contain pinned locations that will show up labeled on Google Earth.

    My idea's pretty simple; take all submissions from DLP, pin and label them, and occasionally update the pack. You can give me coordinates, a general city, or your actual street. I don't care, the anonymity question will be left to you - this will be public, so keep that shit in mind.

    Not sure what server I'll be using to host the pack. Might end up being a Rapidshare thing, I don't know.Here's an example. If you want me to put you in, gimme a city/coordinates/street.

    You, or anyone, will be able to load it by opening the file (once I get it up) in Google Earth.


    Packs.

    Victoria Terrace, DH9 8JZ. If I see anyone I recognise from here staring at houses as they walk along the road I will not be held responsible for my actions :p.

    Already looks cool. Will post the first pack soon as I figure out which server I'm using to host it.

    Would it be possible to mod Google earth to have a IRC ?

    I can imagine hovering my mouse over somebodies name and the globe would focus on their position.
