energyshortage's use of google earth is an example of something similar to what i had in mind in things i want from google.
imagine for a second that you searched "energy shortage" in google. up popped up a google earth representation of all the instances of energy shortage "events" around the world. instantly you would see how expansive the concept was. if there was only energy shortage events in america and there 50, then not so bad right? but what if there was 50,000 only in america, then that would probably be bad. geosearch is a way to understand the context of what you are searching for without having to read text to figure it out.
wow.. that is cool. see, i have good ideas!
