SXSW: Location Based Technology Hits Prime Time

I'm enjoying a few days at SXSW to explore the latest things that are going on in the interactive space. I'm enjoying it and tweeting my impressions/thoughts. Looking forward to connecting with the Stanford Fair Use Project folks and the Berkeley Samuelson Clinic participants on Monday. The issue that most interests me this year is all the location-based technology that is rolling out (literally, everywhere!). The privacy implications are important here, and I have to say that I think did a good roll out with it's double opt-in, neighborhood default (rather than exact location), and guidance/FAQs that address the importance of understanding what the location based information publicizes.
