Also,

Not exposed on the web yet, but in the protocol: current_coords. Of form "37.7788,-122.3974". So coords is machine-readable, and the other one is free text, which we'll do our best to geocode (possibly using third party services for non-US), but is mostly just to show humans and link to google maps.

Re: Also,

I guess I should be happy you're not using an IP-to-latlong service. Everything I've tried on my (nominally dynamic but practically static) IP address has me 50 miles away from my actual location...

Re: Also,

Even the google street address to latlong is about 50 yards wrong...
(41.1627,-73.8628 is accurate to the limits of the satellite images...)
