The Geonames “RSS to GeoRSS Converter” reads the entries of an RSS feed and searches the Geonames Database to find a location for the entry text. If a relevant location is found, its latitude and longitude are added to the RSS feed using the GeoRSS encoding (via rss-specifications.com).

It works pretty good, check out this example of the Reuters newsfeed. The lat and long parameters are added to each item, sweet!
