Geolocation services and projects

A visitor to this site wrote in and pointed me to a project he's working on called Pangaea.  This is a reverse geocoding application that uses google latitude.  I actually looked for something just like this while building the clock since I wanted something more automatic than the Twitter feed to update status.  Pangaea lets you set coordinates and radius as a named location.  It checks your Google Latitude public feed and figures out which location you're in and feeds the name back in a custom feed.  I really like this approach and plan on incorporating it into my clock code.
