Today, we've added a new Search to http://www.olpcMAP.net which works just
like magic!   It's inspired by the plain but informative search at

In the top-center of your map, enter your query to search our database of
people, groups, and deployments.  At the same time, you'll also be
searching Google Maps and social bookmarks at olpcMAP.net   The map will
send you to the top result, and list other possible matches on the left.

Quick Walkthrough:
* Search for a person: Holt -> map centers on Adam Holt's marker
* Search for a group: Waveplace -> map shows their schools from Cambridge
to the Caribbean - individual points appear in search
* Search for a place: Boston -> sends you to Boston on Google Maps, lists
several people
* Google Maps helps : various spellings and phrasings for a place (such as
Ayiti) are caught by Google Maps so you'll see the place you meant

Hope to see many of you tomorrow!
