Petter Pallander is fixing up a Location day hackthon in Malmö on the 6th of December. More info at the Facebook page.
A day and night everything location. Location has become one of the fundamental layer of the web. We’re using location for tracking where we move, to explore new cities, tagging our tweets, status updates, photos and videos. We can add location to every move we do on the web, and we’re already doing it.
It’s exciting times of location based services and it’s exciting times for anyone interested in it. We want to give you a day filled with inspiration and knowledge about location; where we are now and were we might be heading and how it affects us all.
We’ll have entrepreneurs talking about how they’re using location in their products and services and we’re bringing you some of the most knowledgeable people on the topics location + quantified self / exploration / service layer / city planning.
So basically, clear your calendar on the 6th and 7th of December and make sure to come to Malmö. The day will continue into a night of hacking, where the theme is… location of course. More details to be announced, but one thing is sure – you don’t want to miss this.
