HELP WANTED: Developer needed to create Google Maps/Upcoming mashup specific to all these infernal podcasting conferences which keep cropping up. Zero pay, zero direction from management. Other perks include a feeling of accomplishment and the undying love of the podoshpere.
All kidding aside, I could really use an application that used the Google Maps API to display any and all cons that have to do with podcasting.
As a user, I'd use some fancy month selector/slider on the bottom to change my time reference, causing the map to redraw with callouts for all the events happening world wide that month.
As an event organizer, I'd add my event to Upcoming.org and add a very specific tag (podcasting?) to the entry.
As a community member, I'd be responsible for helping police the thing, so that it doesn't get loaded up with spam or events that have nothing to do with podcasting. Maybe some additional fields?
I could use this by, oh... next week. Any takers?
