At Mashup Camp last week each attendee was given one wooden nickel with which to vote for their favorite mashup. Then on both days there was a "Speed Geeking" session during which attendees rotated through the Great Hall getting 5 minute demos from each of the 20+ mashup contestants.
Our mashup directory contains a number of popular tags that are related such as geolocation, location and gps. These kinds of mashups cover a variety of uses from helping hikers know their location, finding nearby friends, planning travel and even turning on a lamp. The mashups we'll look at today use Google Maps and foursquare amongst others. Read below for more details on each.
As we have noted, FourSquare has become an extremely popular way to share where you are. However, unlike yesterday's hot location-sharing app, BrightKite, FourSquare does not have the ability to share photos. Is this an oversight, or is it an opportunity to fill a void?
