Not too complex idea about improving most 'yellow-pages' on intranets. The idea is to keep track of the mistakes people are making in a particular browsing session. This could greatly improve the situation of finding a certain person, as often you've heard a name and are not entirely sure of the spelling or complete name. Especially in Dutch there can be a lot of different spellings for the same name.
This video, which is similar to the PhotoSynth presentation a few years ago is really worth spending the total 7 minutes on. It's mind blowing to see how a number of pictures from a similar scene can be used to present such a rich user experience. Ideas like this finally show where the crowd sourced web is moving towards, and the additional value that can be produced based on content from users.
