walkscore.com — great idea for a google maps mashup site. you type in your address, and it gives an overall ranking of your living quarters on a scale from 1 to 100, in terms of walking distance to types of businesses.

here’s my walk score:


love it. i guess my distance from a movie theater drags my score down.

    Yes, walk score is real a good idea! But why only walk score?How often do we walk nowadays? More and more people drive cars.I have also tried one more service at
    fizber.com. It is called DriveScore.With the help of it you can see how close establishments are by car. Try! It’s really a perfect idea!

  2. i’ll leave this comment up if only to point out how idiotic this idea is — but i’m taking out the link. the site does the same thing as walkscore.com does, except you call it something different, and encourage people to drive instead of walk.
