Some fast ideas:

- Search for a cheap hotel and tell about horse riding and canoeing 
activities within couple of miles. See if any of these is bookmarked by my 
friends in our shared bookmark server.
- Show the places that I should visit based on my location and the shared 
bookmarks under topic: great places to visit.
- Find the locations of the nearest spare parts for a paper specific 
machine in a factory (maybe also look for the DHL etc. database for which 
ones will be fastest to deliver and the shared bookmark listing the places 
most trusted by my work mates).
