Hey Dan:

Just a note to let you know that I've taken what you and your colleagues have come up with here and used it as a springboard to try something similar in Toronto, Canada. The project is called yyzhash and more info can be found at yyzhash.pbwiki.com.

One additional idea we're toying with is the use of FSAs (Forward Sortation Codes, the first three letters of our postal codes, formated as A1A 1A1) to try tagging neighborhood level news on Twitter. So a YYZNEWS tag could be replaced or supplemented by a M5ENEWS tag if the news is in my neighborhood.

I'll keep you posted on how things go.

Best and thanks for the inspiration.
