Pouring Factlets Into Your Brain Holder via Your Ear Sieves

I was walking past Hays Galleria on the way to work the other morning and realised that I didn’t really know anything about it. I was listening to streaming podcasts on my GPS enabled Android G1 and started thinking about receiving little factlets (I originally wrote factoid but apparently that means an unverified statement taken as truth1) as I walk around. I’ve thought about this a bit more and think it’d be really quite a good thing. It’d be like the audio tours you get in museums and the like but defined purely by where you go, rather than you having to follow a pre-determined path. So, assuming there’s not already something similar out there (I wouldn’t be surprised if there was) then I’m going to build it. Does this sound interesting to anyone else, specifically developer types that can help me actually build it?

An off-the-top-of-my-head plan:

1 Or does it?
