This Sunday, millions of sports fans around the world will sit in front of televisions and watch the biggest professional football game of the year. Among those watching will be a select group of hackers and data crunchers in Seattle, Washington. However, instead of prepping for the big game by stocking up on salsa and beer; these hackers will participate in Sports Hack Day and be a part of "building applications that change the way people follow sports and interact with their favorite teams and fellow fans."
Sometimes we forget what the real purpose of all this fancy technology is. And what is that? To make our real lives easier. Mashups often help with that, allowing us to do such simple things as find a good beer, our favorite music artists, where the streetcars are, or where a park is.
When the popular location-based social network Foursquare launched, it quickly attracted users with its game-like features. Now, with over 170,00 users, the service has rapidly become a huge source of data about the popularity of businesses and locations. In November, Foursquare gave developers access to some of this data by releasing an API (check out our Foursquare coverage here). Several applications that used the API were available at launch, with many more on the way. From shopping to games, here are four applications that really show off the potential of Foursquare's API.
