A couple of ideas for enhancements on the OSM site - what do people think? If people think they're good ideas I'll try and find time to hack on them, though the next month might be a bit difficult.
One would be to do something similar to what I already do on Freemap, namely clickable POIs: The user could click on a POI then get a window containing a link to its Wikipedia article (if applicable) and its description tag (if it has one).
The second (and I think this is already on the "todo" page) would be to make a web interface for creating Garmin maps, where a user could select an area and then a Garmin .img map of that area would be generated. I can see two ways of doing this - implement in JSP, grab OSM data through the API and link to existing mkgmap code, or (and much more work) reimplement mkgmap in Ruby to link with the rest of the site.
