I put in a ticky box for something else I'd like to post.

I don't know what exactly you were thinking when you were listing "Location checkins/records of your day (like Foursquare)," but I would like to be able to post geographic information, rather than textual information. I would be interested in posting GPX, KML, and KMZ information that could be displayed graphically, rather than as a listing of locations or addresses. DW still does not support the embedding Google Maps, which makes it difficult to do this without further DW support.

An example of the kind of elaborate maps I like to make is shown in this post, which includes a link to a KMZ file, and a link to Google Maps displaying it. But I'd also be interested in updated GPX files that have collections of waypoints or continuous tracks.

I would also be interested in subscribing to information presented in this way.
