In the past month, we've told you about lots of ways to hack the Google Maps: apartment hunting, CTA trip planning, and, in a special 2-for-1 post, tagging your Flickr photos and tracking local traffic. But maybe you found it all just a bit too intimidating. Never fear: an article from today's Wired News makes getting in the GMaps game a little less scary with lots of testimonials and pictures. (Kinda like Friendster. Only not.)
