Tiny Data hacks and experiments by @richardjpope

Wikicity125 finds nearby Wikipedia articles as you travel through the landscape. You can read them as you trundle along, or save them to Instapaper for later.

New articles are automatically added to the top of the screen as you get nearby, then gradually fade out as you move away. No maps, no pins, no searching.

It is built using the brilliant Wikilocation API, jQuery Mobile and Flask.
