A San Francisco Mission District local is the founder of Ambient Industries, a company that recently released an awesome iPhone application called Flook. Flook is described on their website as a location browser which allows you to bookmark and tag the real world around you. It has a cool user interface too! From the founder:

Flook is not about finding the nearest McDonalds but rather about discovering that this fire hydrant is painted gold each year to commemorate its part in saving the Mission from fire after the 1906 earthquake (http://www.flook.it/community/Jane/50524) or that there’s an Edwardian Ball on next weekend (http://www.flook.it/community/smiling-robot/71128).

It is pretty cool to have “an extra layer of information to the world around you.” You should definitely check it out when you get a chance.
