  2. 1UP: The importance of platforms, and how we’re extending ours | Foursquare Blog

    Ooh, nice: Foursquare’s Venue Project, to tie together IDs for different places (businesses, buildings, etc) on different sites and services. (via Booktwo)

  3. Coderholic’s django-cities at master - GitHub

    Models, with data from GeoNames, for countries, regions, cities and districts, for Django. Haven’t used it yet, but looks very useful.
