OK, I've had this idea bouncing through my head - What about doing a Ron Paul tracker, where there was a map of the US with a dot/star whatever showing where ROn is at that very moment and maybe recent previous places he has been and upcoming dates and places... Know what I mean?
I can help with the format of such a site, but I can't think of how to track him automatically.
I'm pretty sure that it could make news as the first-ever Presidential candidate tracker...
Ideas?

I travel a lot, and I'm sure I've barely missed him a time or two because they're not real good about keeping an accurate schedule of all his appearances. I think that would be great!

The Google Maps API could be good for this. I've worked with it a bit and it seems pretty easy, but do we have anyone more proficient? As far as updating it, we just have to do that by hand as events are announced.

Maybe he could borrow Tommy Thompson's chip.
