Know Where Nearby Sex Offenders Live - Windows Live Maps Mashup

Know where the sex offenders near your neighborhood live. It's a little frightening, but a logical use of google mashups regardless. Vision 20/20 is a free web maps mashup using the sex offender data with over 600,000 registered sex offenders in the U.S. and Windows Live Maps.
You just need to input the address, city or zip code and it instantly shows you a list of names of registered sex offenders with a map of their registered locations pinned on the map. It even shows the crimes and mug shot of each offender.

You can check your area (and probably be a bit freaked out) at Vision 20/20
