Mapping a New, Mobile Internet
February 26, 2009 | BusinessWeek | by Stephen Baker

Sense Networks, led by the 35-year-old Skibiski, is a mere gnat in this
market. It's a services shop powered by five PhDs and a slew of
algorithms. Phone companies and advertisers provide Sense with raw data
on people's movements and behavior. Sense's mission is to transform
mountains of data into intelligence: what individuals will be most
likely to buy, or where they'll be when a craving hits.

Local, hyperlocal, and beyond | Frontier Economy
> SYSTEMIC DISRUPTIONS Local, hyperlocal, and beyond

Among the already established but still rapidly growing models to
respond to those needs are localized ads (of which Craiglist is perhaps
the classic example), social networking sites geared to certain
locations, hyperlocal news focused on a single town or neighborhood, and
repositories of information (for example Google Maps) that allow
linking up information with very specific places.

Internet Geolocation and Evasion
April 10, 2006 academic paper by James A. Muir P. C. van
Oorschot.

Internet geolocation technology (IP geolocation) aims to determine the
physical (geographic) location of Internet users and devices. It is
currently proposed or in use for a wide variety of purposes, including
targeted marketing, restricting digital content sales to authorized
jurisdictions, and security applications such as reducing credit card
fraud. Paper surveys IP geolocation techniques and limitations. This
paper also considers an adversarial model: a knowledgeable adversary
seeking to evade geolocation. Expects this paper to stimulate further
open research and analysis
of techniques for accurate and reliable IP geolocation, and also for
evasion thereof.

We Know Where You Are: With new software, Web sites can tell what city a visitor is coming from; That can be useful information
Sept. 29, 2008. pg. R.8 WSJ article by Riva Richmond looks at
the different uses of geo-location software: (1) ID-ing visitors in Web
sites are located so they can better serve them -- by, for example,
ushering them to pages in their native language or offering them
information, promotions or products pertinent to the local area. (2)
Other firms need to comply with laws or contracts that require they
steer clear of customers in certain states or countries. (3) Other firms
seek to thwart online criminals trying to impersonate clients.
