matt haughey floats some interesting ideas
In a new feature on his site, Matt Haughey has posted a series of interesting social software ideas
. Geographic components figure heavily among them, including a user-annotatable mapping system ("MeFi meets Mapquest"), a geographic opinion rating system ("what do folks 'round yonder think of that there grocery store?"). I think he's right to see geographically-linked services as a key direction for new social software tools--my new year's prediction is that we'll see more activity in that realm than any other this year.
Other ideas floated in the article are some reputation management tools, and better ways to share playlists (and booklists, and movie lists, etc) with your friends.
, who always seems to find the best stuff first!)
