Information visualization is moving out of the research lab and into our everyday lives.

What would the world be like if everything on the network responded to your location? Social sites could become friend-finders, mobile devices could tell you about your environment, your home could respond to your proximity or absence. Fire Eagle is a new open geo platform designed to make this a reality.
In this session, Tom will talk about some of the problems that have stopped location-sensitive services going mainstream, location brokerage as a new architectural layer to bind together geo-services, and how Fire Eagle gives users unprecedented control over their data and privacy.
