YAPL: Yet Another Payphone List - found this cool little site today, it is very neat. People upload information on where are the pay phones are in your town. Things like GPS, incoming call number, and information about the phone are provided. Neato stuff.
Also I've been thinking about creating some software to allow you to annoate a road with information in realtime in the car. That way you could do something like associate speed limit information with road information and tie it all together with GPS location information.
Here is some information on the GPS to road problem I've been researching since none of the mapping APIs provide this functionality.

Automotive navigation system
One thing that I've been really looking for is the ability to give a web service or local database a GPS reading and have it give me back the closet road that the car is on... or the nearest intersection. There really should be an open source system for this, as it would be advantgeous for everyone doing anything with location, presense, augmented reality, and navigation.

MQTTitude: a decentralized 'Latitude' with 'MQTT inside' - binarybucks/mqttitude MQTTitude is an app (well, two apps actually -- one for Android, and another for iOS), which allow a device to periodically publish its location status to an MQTT broker. If you've previously used Google Latitude, you can think of this as a a decentralized Google Latitude.
