We started this project at last years GeoCode.
The idea was to create a database of places available for public meetings. Places like libraries, rec centers, churches, etc. We built a basic prototype site and populated it with hundreds of locations in the Twin Cities.
People respond positively to the idea and are very interested in the concept. However, we need to figure out if the value of the site/database is worth the effort it will take to bring the site to the next level and generate the kind of awareness that will actually generate traffic and usage.
1) Is this a website or tool that people want and are actually likely to use?
2) Are there UI or technical improvements that would make a difference in whether or not people use the site?
3) How do we properly promote a site like this to build traffic and usage?
4) Are there other projects or partners that might be interested in leveraging the database that we've pulled together?
If folks are interested, I'd be open to spending time at GeoCode 3.0 hacking on the site.
I would also be interested in a session focused on explaining the thoughts and goals behind the site and getting input from others on the future of the project.
