GarbageScout: Gmaps for craphounds

GarbageScout is a Gmaps mashup for craphounds: when you're out and about in New York, San Francisco or Philadelphia, you send phonecam pics of any nice garbage you see on the curb, along with the location. GarbageScout puts your pictures on an interactive map of choice crap, and scroungers can grab a wheelbarrow and head on out.

I once stood watch for an hour over a mid-20th-century dentist chair, curvilinear and powder blue, while I waited for Roger Wood, the mad clock-maker, to show up and take it away for conversion into clocks. It's the craphound's code: you've gotta get the junque for your buds.
