Michael,

I played with platial a bit and agree that it's more interesting than a lot of other web2.0 ideas. My answer your question is, people will create information in this way because it is identity-reaffirming (in this particular case, it may also be useful, in terms of keeping track of meaningful experiences in the way you described in your post). As I've mentioned before, I think a significant motivator for participation in these types of sites is theh identity drive, i think it is particularly strong when it comes to places because location is so much at the heart of how one identifies him/herself, both in the very short term (where I choose go to dinner) and long term (where I choose to make my home).

Hi Michael, How is this different from www.plazes.net? In either case, its a useful application and this is an interesting space. rgds Ajit
