Think Global. Map Local.

"...a participatory mapmaking platform that bridges the gap between awareness and action." Just when you thought Google Maps couldn't get any cooler, the community-minded programmers at Open Green Map created a wiki-style interface that let's you map resources relating to sustainability, nature, culture, etc. Think city parks, local businesses, non-profit and human services organizations, museums, etc.

Stuff like this really turns me on. By "stuff" I mean to say any venture related to organizing communities. There are immediate applications for Open Green Maps in my current job, but there are also implications for future plans I'm concocting. There's currently no map for Salt Lake City, let alone my hipster Sugarhouse neighborhood.
