(Research) Rheingold on Location Blogging

Location Blogging (i.e. location-tagged blogposts for instance) is some serious stuff we are all concerned at our lab (especially Patrick and Mauro). Howard rheingold, in the feature is wondering about whether or not it is going to take off.

Will location-tagged recommendation services emerge from the accumulated opinions of many consumers, Wikipedia style, instead of arriving in a lump like a commercial guidebook? Can time-and-place-tagged media aggregate into a historical record of your activities – and display the activities of any who choose to share their media stream?

Comments also deal with "location-based friendster", location-based games like dodgeball an so forth.
