Plazes fills in a gap in today's IM networks--extending presence to physical locations rather than just "online/offline/busy/custom" status messages.
For example, by creating an account and running their little desktop agent, the page located at http://beta.plazes.com/whereis/jzawodn will tell anyone who cares to look exactly where I am (or where my computer was last connected).
The map overlay and integration of Flickr and local search are already there. I wonder how long before this gets better tagging and IM tie-ins...
It'll be fun to watch this evolve, that's for sure.
