News Item #1: 15 year old boy first to check into Foursquare from The North Pole.
Fifteen-year-old Parker Liautaud will forever be remembered as the first person to legitimately check in at the North Pole and unlock the Last Degree badge on Foursquare.


I understand the idea behind foursquare and other location services: It'd be darn handy for people at multi-day events or in school to keep tabs on each other, and that's a good and useful thing. However, I think there's some major privacy concerns with the service and that's what is stopping me from using it or any other such doodad. You can't undo what's been posted on the internets, and keeping your cards close to your chest is always a good idea, no matter what the game.
