For some reason a link to mudlondon came whistling in on one of my feeds today. It's something I looked at a while ago, but I couldn't get the Jabber 'bot to respond to my queries. Anyway I asked around a little, and Jim Ley pointed me in the right directions.
Mudlondon is down, but I had a quick chat on irc with Jo (aka zool) whose project it is and she was looking at possibly resurrecting it, if not in London, but in San Francisco where she's now based. She's also involved in the San Francisco OpenGuide, the SF OpenGuide is curiously sparse given that there's allegedly so many hackers in the Bay Area and that ample free geodata is sloshing around in US, I know it's new, but I still a bit surprised. Still it gives me something to prod Russ about!
One of these days, if/when I have some free time I'll have a good look at mudlondon, it can't be that hard, can it? :-)
