Send Me Your Gowalla Errors…

This past week I got an email from Gowalla saying that my user status was now elevated to their street team level.  This basically means that I now have the ability to go in and edit or correct locations that might have been entered into the system incorrectly.  For instance, there are currently two Ruby Tuesday’s listed on Gowalla for Conway, one … [Read more...]

The GeoSocial Shakedown

I have been in the process of revamping my presentation from Barcamp Conway on The GeoSocial Shakedown for Barcamp Jonesboro this upcoming weekend and I figured I would do an accompanying blog post to go along w/ the presentation.

Presentation: GeoSocial Shakedown

Keith Crawford and I recorded Episode 2 tonight of The Social Radar podcast.  Tonight Keith was gracious enough to allow me to start out the show w/ a rant of my own regarding Facebook’s lax privacy in regards to wall posts from applications to profile pages.  This is something that I will never understand, especially realizing the cluttered path … [Read more...]

#RefreshCA GeoSocial Showdown (Update)

Recently I did a blog post asking for feedback regarding the format for our upcoming February Central Arkansas Refresh meeting on GeoSocial Applications.  I think for the most part we all agreed that there needs to be some sort of “intro” to each of the applications we are going to showcase.  Daniel Spillers brought up a good point in … [Read more...]
