  • A lot of talks in Vancouver are technical in nature or about social media.
    The business implications of geolocation will drive this talk.

    InfoUSA mainly provides listings for enterprises. They live in the B2B world.

  • The base mapping data is all owned by either NavTeq or by Tele Atlas.

    1) NavTeq is owned by Nokia
    2) Tele Atlas is owned by Tom Tom

    Device manufacturers do not like this. Apple and RIM have to partner with competitors for their devices.
  • This is supposed to be a Google Street View van.

    There isn’t a whole lot of disruption so far. Most of the disruption is coming from services higher up in the data stack. This is a difficult area to compete in because of the massive amounts of data that is required.

    Slowly but surely, traditional web companies are building up their data though.
  • That’s not a pipe. It’s a picture of a pipe.

  • They own the data behind features like Street View. They own data to give traffic directions.
  • Placebase is a startup that was acquired by Apple last year. Their technology can produce tables, charts, and reports on top of maps.
  • Augmented Views.
    Layar Reality Browser on the left.
  • Real-time

  • It’s Wikipedia applied to listings.
    Pros: Gets updated instantaneously
    Cons: Not reliable quality

  • Flixster
  • That was the data. Know to the functional stack.
  • Skyhook Wireless
    Assisted GPS only on the iPad!

  • Display ads are boring.

  • Facebook -> Zynga -> OfferPal/SuperRewards

    Foursquare is NOT the Facebook of mobile.
    Foursquare in NOT the Zynga of mobile.
  • Gowalla owes me an iPod Nano.
