comment MapQuest License
The FB terms of service for their Places API are more liberal than the MapQuest ones (which were referred by you in your question). They used to be more strict about it, but know they just want people to use it and will look the other way - for now.

The risk? You are violating the agreement. If you are "Joe Schmoe", they probably just block your account and are done with it. If you are bigger, you will probably hear from their lawyers.

comment How to create a circle in PostGIS?
Nicklas, you are correct about the casting and I agree with you 100% about the local projection (i.e knowing your data). Nevertheless, if the answer is that he just wants to have "world-wide" data, IMHO, the casting logic inside the Geography type will do a much better job at figuring out what SR is appropriate for that particular distance operation rather than any other complicated custom logic. Another good thing about the geography type is that although a lot of the operations are currently casted to cartesian math, the operations keep getting updated to use sphere mathematics.

Google also gives you "caching", but like a said, it is a gray area. There is a huge difference between adding your results to memcached or redis vs storing it in the GeoDatabase. Besides, they also include provisions for asking you to get rid of the cache. Also remember that it is easy on their end to flag the fact that you are doing bulk downloads, What are you trying to do with the POIs?

comment Speeding up Python calculated timestamp field in ArcGIS Desktop?
Just a note, calling the pre-canned gp functions will be faster most of the time. I explained why in a previous post gis.stackexchange.com/questions/8186/…

comment A lot of pointers to load on map-A better solution
Since OL is client side technology, it will not reduce the amount of data transfered. However, if he were doing server-side clustering, it would help greatly :)

comment Why do valid polygons repeat the same start and end point?
@Kirk it would have been nice if you showed how the rings are laid out; is it a "banana-like" list of coordinates with one outer ring or is it an outer ring with an inner ring that touches the outer ring at only at one vertex?. Even at that, the answer for your particular question is implementation specific. Check out Paul's notes on Polygon validity 2010.foss4g.org/presentations/3369.pdf
