  • Bringing Your Location Onto the Web

    by Tom Coates, aaronofmontreal and Dennis Crowley

    The last five years have been powered by one dataset your social network. It's been the animating spark that turned photo galleries into Flickr, bookmarks into Delicious and university communities into Facebook. But what's next? What's the next block of information with the power to change everything?

    One candidate is your location. New technologies are making it easier to capture than ever before, new models for privacy are giving users more control over how it's used, and just like the social network you can combine it with all kinds of stuff, making them even more useful and fun. In this panel, Tom Coates from Fire Eagle will talk to Dennis Crowley from Foursquare, Aaron Straup Cope from Flickr and John Geraci from DIYcity about some of the possibilities, problems and cool stuff that people are doing with location.

    At 3:00pm to 3:50pm, Friday 9th October
