Gowalla, the location-based social network, is beginning to establish itself as the most generously interoperable of its check-in–offering peers. At a SWSX panel last week about integrated location data, Gowalla co-founder and CTO Scott Raymond indicated that developers would soon even be able to download data en masse from Gowalla for their own manipulation and analysis. When asked by the moderator, Programmable Web Executive Editor Adam DuVander, "Can I download Gowalla's data," Raymond responded that providing the option was "definitely on the roadmap."
