I Am Here: One Man's Experiment With the Location-Aware Lifestyle
Simply put, location changes everything. This one input—our coordinates—has the potential to change all the outputs. Where we shop, who we talk to, what we read, what we search for, where we go—they all change once we merge location and the Web.
Interesting Wired article on Geotagging and photographs. Shows the potentially creepy side of stalking throught the net using geotagged flickr photos!
location, location, location location awareness needn't be invasive or creepy. But it can be isolating.
To test whether I was being paranoid, I ran a little experiment. On a sunny Saturday, I spotted a woman in Golden Gate Park taking a photo with a 3G iPhone. Because iPhones embed geodata into photos that users upload to Flickr or Picasa, iPhone shots can be automatically placed on a map. At home I searched the Flickr map, and score—a shot from today. I clicked through to the user's photostream and determined it was the woman I had seen earlier. After adjusting the settings so that only her shots appeared on the map, I saw a cluster of images in one location. Clicking on them revealed photos of an apartment interior—a bedroom, a kitchen, a filthy living room. Now I know where she lives.Google Latitude

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).

Matt Jones's current thoughts on location-based services and the value of "nearish" over "here".
Matt Jones of dopplr de-bunks the b-chino'd hype surrounding in the moment location based apps. Love it.
Perhaps the idea of showing where you are exactly now isn't so good afterall - it's more relevant to talk about where I'll be soon so you can react to it accordingly.

Foursquare is by no means the first location-based social network to help you connect with friends using GPS via your mobile device. In fact, Brightkite was one of the first companies to really make a splash, combining location sharing, friend connections, and Twitter-like streams to create a photo and status update feed for your check-in history, and placestreams for each location. [Next Twitter? or NBT ?]

Four years ago I wrote about a way to encode the latitude and longitude of any point on the Earth's surface to 10m of accuracy with a 10 character code. Apart from a modification to the way the check digit is calculated, the code remains unchanged.
Four years ago I wrote about a way to encode the latitude and longitude of any point on the Earth's surface to 10m of accuracy with a 10 character code. Apart from a modification to the way the check digit is calculated, the code remains unchanged. The idea is this: instead of giving people addresses, or coordinates, you can give them something like a post code for any point on the Earth's surface. This can then be entered into a GPS device and decoded. Thus a business can provide its 10:10 code and know that people will be able to find it.
