"Geo-search is developing and this is a first, simple step to make pages more friendly to Google's product."

Yah. I couldn't agree more with ibizwiz and others that there are many ways to improve this first demo. But I think Googlers were playing with this and they realized that this geosearch demo already lets you do new types of searches that you couldn't really do before. Around here for example, it's easier to do a distance-based search than trying to do a search like
"salsa lessons" "mountain view"sunnyvale"palo alto""santa clara"milpitas. You get the idea.. :)

As far as the future, my hunch is that just like any feature, the amount of effort that we put into will depend on the interest and utility that we see for users. I'm pretty encouraged from the interest that we've seen so far. :)
