SMBmeta and rapid adoption

At the Harvard event I mentioned that I thought geographic search was still a hot topic, and how Dan Bricklin’s SMBmeta proposal was a good approach. Here’s what I wrote when I first heard about it. My main point got sidetracked into a discussion of how Vindigo delivers much value, but what I was coming around to was how Dan’s approach could lead to rapid adoption a la Really Simple Discovery.
Dan’s got a tools page with a file crator and a registration utility both implemented as web forms, but also allow you to download the code and modify it for your application. There’s a weblog with current information. The idea is straightforward enough to build it quickly, and the idea makes sense. This may be another good case study for rapid evolution of a product.
