Hi all,

The old map of developers on the wiki's "Developers Bios" page
(http://wiki.scummvm.org/index.php/Developers_Bios) doesn't seem to be
working right. Only Ender is on the map. ;)

Well, I was looking at google maps today, and I noticed that you could
make your own maps. So, I just tested it out using KML
(http://code.google.com/apis/kml/documentation/kml_tut.html) with two
points:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<kml xmlns="http://www.opengis.net/kml/2.2">
  <Placemark>
    <name>Matthew Hoops (clone2727)</name>
    <Point>
      <coordinates>-74.367657,40.587625</coordinates>
    </Point>
  </Placemark>
  <Placemark>
    <name>James Brown (Ender)</name>
    <Point>
      <coordinates>115.816667,-31.983333</coordinates>
    </Point>
  </Placemark>
</kml>

And that became this map, which could also be embedded in a webpage:
http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=107506273581356677573.0004557b636785d61c181&z=2

I could add the rest of the developers, but I wanted to see what you
guys thought first.

-Matt
