Sean Gorman at FortiusOne writes they had an “overwhelming urge to launch something” in anticipation of GeoCommons and they’ve come up with pollmappr — “syndicated, geographically aware polls” where the results are displayed in Google Earth according to geographic region.

The real challenge becomes thinking of a question where the geographic location of the voter is likely to make a real difference:
The geographic regions are US only (at the moment?) which means you need to come up with US-centric questions, and that my vote from Egypt doesn’t count. So I’m voting by proxy (literally, ha) — for the Boston Red Sox.
