Awhile back I read a post over at GEB about how The Jane Goodall Institute blog was publishing all their content via kml/kmz. Pretty cool stuff, but I'm wondering how they update the content of each blog entry. Jill was encouraging me to journal our travels it dawned on me that I could do it like JGIB...in kml. Great, author all the content in GE. But what if you could blog the day's entry with a some specific geotags and have a script harvest the relevant info to create a kml on the fly. That's what J. Allen Glennon at UCSB has put together - a prototype for doing just this but in the context of disease reporting. Apparently he was inspired by Larry Brilliant's TED talk which you should definitely check out.
