Right before the holidays we put up a small events demo on playground to play with the idea that it might be useful to see relevant events on a navigable map.

Maps expose a whole world of ways to interact with our data. Maybe you want to see all the good festivals in Europe this summer, or you want to find something within stumbling distance of your front door. Maybe you live in Cambridge and don’t care about gigs in London, or maybe you do. How about seeing where your favourite artist is headed this year?

Coming up with imaginary features is fun! I could do this all day. But what I’m really curious about is whether you guys think there’s a place for maps on the site, and what you’d want it to do for you. Have a play and most certainly have a feedback.
