Thought of something interesting and do-able with wifi networks

So nowadays, there's a million networks that have been logged on the internet and stuff. So say you were eardriving and got lost. What if you used the wifi networks' logged locations that you were able to connect to as a guide to where you are? Would that be sweet or what?? I'd connect to "katie" down the street, and on a map, it'll show me where I am ... haha.

Just thought I'd post it before I forgot about it. What do you think?
