CivicSpace has announced the ALPHA of their hosted service. This includes CiviCRM 1.3. Please consider helping them out by signing up to be an alpha tester. From Zack: The service will be similiar to Drupal hosting offered by Bryght but will provide the CivicSpace 0.8.3 Drupal distribution. In the future we hope to launch the ASP publicly as a low cost service for the non-profit & advocacy sector, but for now we are looking for a few brave CivicSpace community members to help us test it. Please fill out the form if you are interested in participating and we will be in contact with you shortly. http://civicspacelabs.org/home/asp-alpha-test

CiviCRM has a lot of details under the covers that people might miss. One such feature is a simple Google Maps integration. From the contact list, select one or more contacts. From the drop down actions menu, select "Map Contacts using Google Maps" and click the go button.
