As per my action item Thursday, I have taken a shot at preparing a 
tutorial on the why and how of geo location annotation via RDFa.  The 
tutorial itself is at http://rdfa.info/wiki/Geo-tutorial - the main 
tutorials page is at http://rdfa.info/wiki/Tutorials.

I don't think the format of this tutorial is perfect, nor is its 
content.  It is a first cut.  Thanks to Roland, Michael, and Manu for 
providing input already.  Please look it over and either make changes or 
mail your comments to this list.

One question that has already been posed to me for which I do not have a 
good answer:

In the examples I point to the dbpedia entry for the Washington Monument 
as the definitive *subject* I am describing.  There is also a Washington 
Monument web page from the US Government.  Why is that not a more 
appropriate subject?  I use a link to it in the examples so there is 
something to "click" on.  And if that were the subject for everything, 
is there a way to update the markup so that we wouldn't have to 
duplicate the URI?

Can't wait to get feedback on this - fire away!
