Hi everybody
  I was interested in studying this fascinating application from MIT. I was wondering if Simile is like a vertical search engine. Or does Simile also possess vertical search capabilities.
  I am a newbie to this subject, and I beg to be pardoned for asking a naive question.

I was demoing Piggybank/Solvent to someone just yesterday; I picked a
page full of addresses, scraped them with Solvent. I got a message
saying "looking up geo-coordinates". Then I showed them on a map.

I did the same demo today (I don't remember if it was the same page or
not). Now, in the PiggyBank page, I don't get a "coordinates" property
at all, and I can't map anything.

How is this coordinates lookup done? Does this hit some server at
Simile, which can be down? Or did something change in my Solvent
