Home-grown Google Earth wlan map

Three weeks ago I marvelled at the audacity of Microsoft mapping wifi access points to their coordinate positions for use with the “Locate me” feature in Virtual Earth. How time flies: Today, jkx@Home posts a do-it-yourself tutorial for creating a Google Earth wlan map. He stitches together Kismet, GPSDrive, MySQL and Python, and does it all in Linux (except for the actual viewing in Google Earth), so it’s a bit geek-infused, but wow.
