Yahoo, Google maps for meetings

The newish Yahoo Maps API, and Google Maps API have some pretty cool meetings applications, and you don't even have to be a geek to use them. Just think: You could have a map, either on the Google or Yahoo sites or in your own Web site, that detailed all the hotels, convention center, restaurants for special events—everywhere your attendees, speakers, and VIPs might need to know about, all on one handy area guide.

David Gammel is using it to show where his upcoming speaking gigs are. If anyone else is using this, please let me know. I'd love to see what you're doing with it.
