What's involved in adding places to the Twitter "place" database? I'm
thinking specifically of Chile - they had a 7.2 aftershock today and
their Twitter infrastructure is in much better shape than Haiti's. I'm
on a few of the mailing lists related to mapping and relief efforts -
I believe the data you need can be obtained from Open Street Map, but
I don't know the details.
