I dont know how this mailing list thing works, first time on it, they
should have something that makes sense like quora.com

For the question I asked, I didn't know you had to do all that just to get
a map. What happens if I use http://mapbox.com + Python + Yelp API ?

I thought that google maps lets you add stuff, and I just want that stuff
to be stuff accessible from the yelp api -- since google won't enable you
to do that, then if I continue with this, will I be able to do this
on mapbox without having to make a website?
