Coming to you today from Google’s GeoDeveloper Day — the pre-event to the Where 2.0 conference tomorrow and Wednesday. Stay tuned for details — unless I get so engroessed I forget to blog — and most likely for a longer piece soon on WorldChanging.
The Google and event focus: looking at the intersection of “search, maps and geolocation.”
My focus: the intersection of that with sustainability — and sustainable business — opportunities. And in particular, the intersection of place information and flow information and both businesses and communities.
Larry: “Since you can’t be in more than one place at a time, these tecchnologies enable you to act as if you are.”
