Heh. On the wider topic of hosting your own version of Web 2.0-type
applications, AutoDesk have set up the 'MapServer Foundation': they're
taking over hosting of UMN MapServer (now 'MapServer Cheetah':
http://mapserver.gis.umn.edu/), and have released their own map server
under the LGPL.
So now, if you have maps (and, IIRC, Bruce Perens has a bunch of US
maps), you can run your own Google Maps-alike.
I also came across something that looks like the Semantic Web's answer
to del.icio.us: http://www.annotea.org/mozilla/ubi.html
