The Bestest Yellow Pages Evar

There is a lot of buzz lately about Amazon's A9 Yellow Pages, which displays multiple pictures of actual storefronts along with listings. A few folks including my neighbor/friend Carrick have written about it and taken it upon themselves to help Amazon out by taking photos of whole streets.

Here is a listing for my old video store on 15th Ave in Capitol Hill.
Carrick's slideshow of Broadway in Seattle in Flickr (set the slide timing to 1 second).
As with every meme in the next little while, it has a tag and that tag is: A9local.

I could totally see myself looking for a store/restaurant/venue and using Amazon to get some idea of what it looks like before going. The more I play with it, the more impressive it is. Very cool.
