So there's a new web database that matches your web site to a set of latitude/longnitude coordinates: GeoURL.org. I've just signed up this blog with coordinates Lat: 37.7205544 Lon: -122.4465637 obtained from the U.S. Census Bureau's Tiger Map Server. These aren't exactly the coordinates for my house, it's actually for the nearby BART station. I'm not sure what good this is, but it seems neat :)
