I Am Here: One Man's Experiment With the Location-Aware Lifestyle

This is crazy scary!
A great article on the incredible potential (and scary pitfalls) of broadcasting your location at all times. Including some really interesting discussion of the way our social contexts haven't really caught up (e.g. people thinking he was lonely or depressed and yearning for company).
This is scary stuff, I tell you what.

Twitter Blog: Location, Location, Location
From the Twitter Blog: > We're gearing up to launch a new feature which makes Twitter truly location-aware. A new API will allow developers to add latitude and longitude to any tweet. Folks will need to activate this new feature by choice because it will be off by default and the exact location data won't be stored for an extended period of time. However, if people do opt-in to sharing location on a tweet-by-tweet basis, compelling context will be added to each burst of information. This, along with their mention of the ability to pull messages based on geographic scope, will open up a lot of possibilities. News reporting is one of the biggest ones, but events and even finding people in your neighborhood are obvious extensions.

Why the NMEA standard is so much trouble
Away back in the dark and backward abysm of time when GPS technology was first being made generally available (e.g., 1993), only military-grade receivers were sensitive enough to use it where there were things like buildings and trees partly blocking the sky view. The first civilian customers to actually find a use for it were people messing about in boats. Thus it came to pass that the manufacturers of marine navigation systems were the first civilians to grapple with the question of how a GPS receiver should report TPV information over a wire to a navigational computer.

Twitter Blog: Twitter Places: More Context For Your Tweets
It's been a little surprising that Twitter hasn't integrated this long ago, given the rise of location based services. Bottom line is, Tweets can now be sources to a location if the sender OKs it. For a lot of location-oriented companies, there's a lot of potential here.
Twitter launches location - allows you to 'tag' tweets with locations, and it ties in with Foursquare/Gowalla. Big news in terms of easing integration and the fact that location is important, regardless of privacy issues. There will be a tech briefing available.
Twitter Blog: Twitter Places: More Context For Your Tweets
Starting today, you can tag Tweets with specific places, including all World Cup stadiums in South Africa, and create new Twitter Places. You can also click a Twitter Place within a Tweet to see recent Tweets from a particular location. Try it out during the next match—you will be able to see Tweets coming from the stadium.
Share and discover what’s happening right now, anywhere in the world.
Twitter Launches “Places” Feature with Foursquare Integration
I'll be keeping an eye on this as we build out our geolocation ideas at TBD. Twitter has a much bigger base than Foursquare, so if they do this right, every service can benefit from the user boost.
After months of rumors and hinting, Twitter has unveiled its major new foray into the world of geolocation, Twitter Places.
