Sounds like a pretty good idea to me. I havent looked into it too much, but can you create a closed group of contributors, rather than having a moderator? I dont want to sound elitist but...
The only thing that worries me about this is that, if anyone can put a coffee POI in it, wed end up with a lot of crud (ie; bakeries with a machine shoved in the corner serving mass marketed low grade swill) and still be picking out which ones the good/great ones are to go to.
If we could make it a closed or restricted group, maybe then we could just have a select 10-20 people that could post the information from the State by State Good Coffee guide in CS.
