Questions & Answers with Google Maps
Quora is a website of questions and answers created, edited, and organised by everyone who uses it. Today the site has added Google Maps to topics with associated locations.
For example, if you search for Chicago the city is shown on a static Google Map with all the Chicago related questions listed beneath the map. If a user clicks on the static map a larger interactive Google Map will open.
Read Write Web says that Quora is building an iPhone app and surmises at some of the location capabilities that might be built into the app. For example, the app should be able to push notifications about nearby locations as you travel around.
