Imagine a web site that holds photographs of every street number in London. Each picture would be uploaded by the general public using camphones. The system would hold a history of photos. It would be searchable by postcode or street name and street number in the style of Streetmap.co.uk. Attached to each photo would be a Wiki style page where people could leave comments and reviews. When you're going somewhere new, you could get a map from streetmap and visit this site to see what #23 actually looks like. If you were using a Wifi or GPRS connected PDA, you could look at the reviews and pictures while deciding whether to go in. Voidstar
VS is in a holding pattern. It's likely that some of the functionality will end up getting integrated into UrbanVancouver.com, while the VS.net site will get used for testing and further development of the "place" objects that I have in mind.
