I've started an "Edits" channel over at Socialight. It takes Monocle's location-based recommendations (with full attribution, of course) and tags them to a defined place. Then, you can access their picks on your mobile phone when you are in the area. For example, you land in a new city, check in to your hotel, then check in with your location via the mobile web to quickly see what recommendations are in your immediate area awaiting your discovery.
Socialight is very good for finding off the beaten path selections, and Monocle's content in New York, Geneva, London, Hong Kong and Tokyo really adds a nice element to the platform. If you haven't yet signed up for Socialight, go do it. Also, the third issue of Monocle is on newstands now.
