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.

BlindSquare founder, Ilkka Pirttimaa, once browsed over Wikipedia's Augmented Reality article and realized the concept focused solely on vision. Pirttimma believed the concept could expand to audio; thus, the idea for BlindSquare was born.

BlindSquare pulls data from the FourSquare API and alerts users of restaurants, stores, and other locations surrounding them via audio instructions.
