“Fourtrace is a research project in “Advanced topics in Computer Networking” at University of California, Santa Barbara. Our goal is to find out if it’s possible to predict where a user is at a given time.”
My current opinion of “lo so” puts location-based social networks somewhere between stupid and dangerous. If these services are going to thrive, I’m going to need a better reason to check in than letting my sphere know where I am.
Most of the time, I don’t want the world to know where I am, but I do want my phone to know. So, that makes me wonder. I wonder how many others are like me? I wonder if the technorati’s use of Foursquare will really translate to the general population?
