When I saw three new SMS APIs, Kinross, Oventus & Txttools added to our index I thought that I might as well dive into this telephony area a little more deeply. A few minutes of clicking and I learned just how ignorant I was about this space. My previous understanding of the texting service provider arena was based on limited exposure. I had only heard of Tropo & Twilio and I assumed that they were the main players with other SMS sites simply wrapping around them. It seems that just the opposite is true, and that there is a lot of fragmentation in this area.
Foursquare, the leading location-based social tool, announced a major new initiative last week to expand its location database to include cross-references to corresponding venue listings from other services. As characterized in the announcement post on the company blog, the goal is to make Foursquare the missing "Rosetta Stone for location, allowing you to link information about a real-world place from one database to any other."
