Blake Shaw of Foursquare on contextual awareness (video)


First, some amazing stats.

  • Cataloged 55 million places
  • 4.5 billion total check-ins
  • 6 million check-ins a day

@metablake¬†of Foursquare talks about their new offering. (Funny thing about accuracy, is that Brightkite originally had place-snapping back in 2008.) I really like the thought of chiming in when you’re out of your element. Enjoy!
