The GOOG411 thing does still work. It's under Phone Losers of America in Cincinnati, Ohio on Stratford Avenue.
I'm lazy so I created a way to dial the conference directly through goog411 by type in the zip code, then let google guess the business name.
In the following number P means pause, eg. most phones have a way to program a two second Pause and Wait until keypress for dialing extensions directly.
the 5 number after the first two pauses is to make goog411 trip up and quickly go into "say just the city and state" mode, whereby the zip is then entered, followed by two pauses, then phonelosers is typed and guessed correctly by goog411. I was able to whittle phonelosers down to phonel. Fewer than that and it guesses cincinnati beluc center?, PLA, cincinnati bell, warsaw wireless, etc....
I wonder if a human watches the user-submitted entries in goog411. Like, could someone submit 'church of christ jesus and the holy cvs drugs scooter store hates f*gs' where someone is searching for a church or drug store and hears that on the list?
Guess I'll have to wait for that new batch of google voice invitations to get sent.
How do you guys edit/create on Google Maps, because you have to verify address or phone number?
Maybe whoever runs that system has a friend in the PLA.
