wikipedia vision

I heard about a new Wikipedia/Google Maps mashup this morning on NPR called Wikipedia Vision, which allows you to watch real-time anonymous Wikipedia on Google Maps:

It only tracks anonymous edits because IP addresses are needed to pinpoint geographical location, while registered user IP adresses aren’t tracked by Wikipedia. Wikipedia Vision was created by László Kozma, who credits flickrvision, the Google Maps/Flickr feeds mashup, as his inspiration:
