I'm not sure if this should be posted here, or a reply to some comments made in the Discussion, but it deals with meeting people/locations, etc. The map by jcwren is amazing... kudos to you on that, but until a recent write-up, i was unaware of it. With the flow of conversation leaning towards a more social evironment away from the computer... how about a very simple, yet helpful page.. with "your screenname, city, state/province, country, email contact, and place for personal comments for all to see about contact information/etc.". Just a thought.. nothing fancy needed, just the basics.
