Google Gears Getting Location Awareness


    Fitzroyalty is a hyperlocal blog about the suburb of Fitzroy in Melbourne. It uses the Wordpress CMS and the Geopress plugin to geotag posts to the GeoRSS standard. Geode and Gears Geolocation will enable browser location awareness but someone needs to build something to connect the location aware browser to location specific content. PHP freaks - your mission is to build a Wordpress plugin that uses Geode or Gears Geolocation data with post geo data to enable readers to load up my blog (or any blog with geotagged content) and get the story nearest to them, not just the most recent story.
