Out of curiosity, have you played with the mappoint apis and system? I haven't, but I wonder if it might offer some of the "geoprocessing power" you talk about?

I have used the mappoint application a few years ago. At the time it was only fairly developed.

Mappoint is morphing into a system that allows some analysis tools for a web based environment.

But Mappoint isn't a free service that you can mashup with. ESRI has their ArcGIS Server which offers amazing distributed geoprocessing tech - but it's extremely expensive.

The beauty of the systems Techcrunch was looking at is that they are free to experiment with. These systems have shown that innovation requires the encouragement of experimentation. It's a lot easier to experiment with free stuff.
