Berlin by numbers

Maybe some of you are familiar with maybe the not so latest, but still hype which is geo tagging, geo location, and so on.
Berlin based Plazes is probably one of the pioneers on this, then there is Pointoo and of course countless other startups adding location based services to your life.

And now here’s an interesting project called BBNO – Berlin By Numbers. The author inventor of BBNO, Kim Booth, send us this suggestion.

3_tourists_at _victory_column_256x341 The way it works is that, BBNO makes a free English guide to Berlin available on your mobile phone. Anyone with a data plan can access and edit it. It’s kinda like the Hitchhiker’s Guide to Berlin (Kim adds, Sorry Douglas) with a Babelfish thrown in for good measure. The website also uses Wikipedia entries on Berlin in Japanese, Russian and so on. More information can be found on

Looks pretty useful overall, unfortunately my phone is borked and I couldn’t try it. Which -hint, hint- is why I like Plazes because it has this SMS interface which is quite useful if you don’t have the latest hype mobil phone. But if you have one and give it a go, feel free to leave some feedback in the comments.
