I guess we know MizPee is all woman, or else she would also have added "safest" to the list.

Neat. But too bad it doesn't work in real time to let you know that someone just left something awful. May those who soil public restrooms be cursed the worst curse imaginable.

Man, that'd be something: tie in geo-twitter support. Plus, it might eliminated meatspace bathroom graffiti.

that'll be the micro-blog "pizzlr": A global community of friends and strangers answering one simple question: Where are you going to the bathroom? Answer on your phone, IM, or right here on the web!

No wonder some rather "antsy" strangers have been showing up at my apartment door lately. They really need to limit this thing to public restrooms only.

Burhanistan: For that, we'd need wikipeedia.

One that the domain name squatters overlooked?

You said squat.

sorry, that works more for Asian bathrooms

Useless. Just find the nearest Twitter user and piss down their throat.

The inevitable mashup could be called shittr. Look, it's even Web 2.0 compliant and everything!

Why doesn't the iphone do this automatically? In fact, why doesn't the iphone turn into a bathroom?!

The answer to this concern is always "Starbucks."

Nice tag list!
I never heard of Khazi before. Maybe you could add Mersey Trout to the list.

sigh

not worthy of www.shareideas.org, when will that time, energy, talent and effort be invested in something meaningful on the mobile platform?

yeah yeah my favourite soapbox ;p

No wonder my bathroom didn't show up on the list.

Amazingly enough, that was already proposed and is apparently in progress.

It's called a restaurant. As long as you don't look like a savage and you ask nicely, they'll let you go.

Dunno if things are better or worse (but I can guess), but back in HS (late '70s) I read in an historian's essay on cities that it was far easier to find a publicly available pissoir in Rome at its height than in contemporary New York.

Naturally, The Onion was all over the e-toilet during the dot-com boom.

Yet another reason for me not to get a cellphone. I can usually find a public restroom without the assistance of technology.

If I get really stumped I *gasp* ask a fellow human being if they happen to know where one might be.
