About the project:
Hello, and thanks for visiting my Craigslist-GoogleMaps combo site!
I hope you enjoy it, and that it helps you find your new place to live.
I've gotten a ton of great feedback from everyone the last few days. To answer some common questions:
Satellite imagery is coming soon, along with Safari & Opera support.
Yes, more cities are on their way.
Several people have asked for the Rooms & Sublets subcategories on Craigslist, so I'll try to get those up too.
Thanks, and let me know what you think of the app! Paul
New! Austin, TX and Vancouver, B.C. are now on the map

Static ads and parodies have already appeared in video games for years (see left-image replaced 4/4/2009). This NYT article discusses how ad placements in video games are the next big thing, with integration of ads into story and plot, just like in film. The difference is that the ads can change when gamers are connected to the Internet. Exposure is one thing and will likely positively affect brand metrics, but the real question is how can this be optimized and integrated into gameplay. Will future versions of Grand Theft Auto allow you to, say, trash a Starbucks? Of course, this will open up challenges for hackers who might want to play around with brands, such as Crack in the Box.
