With Google providing a map API for anybody who wants to play, map mashups are spreading like wildfire. Submarine wrecks, golf courses, volcanos, Chicago crime: they're all being mapped with Googlemaps. Our new favorite is the still-young LA Eats With Maps, which was created by the man behind LA Foodblogging and LA Blogs. Anyone can sign up, post a restaruant, short description, and its location: voila, it's mapped! So far we trust the restaurant reviewers; we just wish there were more of them. We never know where to eat in Santa Monica.

And if we could get LA beermapped, then we'd really be set.
