Rixome project lets you tag the world

Marc Perton

rixomeIf you've caught the bug for tagging data and want to apply it to the physical world — or just want to be able to see what others have to say about places you're visiting — you should check out the Rixome project. Developed by Spanish grad student José Luis Pajares, Rixome uses a GPS-linked database to let anyone apply tags to the world around them and save the info with cameraphone pics. The info can then be retrieved and appended by anyone who visits the area; web users can view the data as well, but can't add to it.
