The NSA was granted a patent for an IP geo-location technology based on triangulation using latency measures.  We played around with a similar approach using UDP several years ago and you could triangulate to the zip code level or so.  A better way I think than the current approaches being discussed.  Not sure if the NSA patent is being commercialized or not though.
