The Londonist’s comment on the Guardian’s “Been There” service caught my eye.
Just looked at Been There service looks neat: a contributive travel guide – think of a personal Time Out guide, meets urban pub directory meets the Londonist.
Initially, it’ll be sketchy and thin. Then it’ll blossom and be full of crap, marketing crap and contributions that’re impossible to evaluate…
What’d be nice is to link this with a FOAF approach so that I can filter my view of a city to a given type. This could be liberating: the annoying museum geek who ordinarily would bore for britain would all of a sudden be the ideal person to have recommending obscure cultural haunts. Surely, with Web2, it’s only a matter of time until someone adds this 🙂
