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...]

Thoughts on Geolocation Apps (Gowalla & Foursquare)
