Wikinear: location-based Wikipedia articles

My friend and fellow Brightoner Simon Willison of Django/OpenID fame has just released a lovely little mashup called wikinear that uses FireEagle and Wikipedia to show you Wikipedia articles that are relevant to your current location.

If you are on the FireEagle beta, you can play with it right now. Otherwise, Simon has four invites that will go to the first four people to comment on his blog post (as I write this, there are three remaining, so hurry!)
