  • new social etiquettes will emerge

    i think about the law of unintended consequences - you can't predict what will happen

    we've seen this happen with fluidtime - how actually picks a place and time to meet these days?

    two that come to mind:

    who moves first? - if everyone can see where all their friends are, when going somewhere, who will move first and actually get their first.
    fluidplace

    what will people talk about? - where are you? is one of I think three phone conversation starters - necessary interaction before you can get to what you really want to talk about - if we automate that (and the weather), people will either communicate less or have to find new social norms to talk about

    i think a lot about it
    but I refuse to say that new technology is good or bad
    all have to play along, and work our way through the problems

  • data fuzziness

    don't need exact co-ords for most things (and they're not user friendly)

    might be city or street

    Nokia Sports Tracker

    but at a more local level - I've tried a few systems for real-time broadcast of where you and your friends are
