Urban Architects
"Services like Twitter, Foursquare, and Outside.in are changing the way I use the city and I am certain they are changing the way many of us use the cities we live in. And we are just at the very beginning. Think about what happens when we get true augmented reality services on our phones. Think about what happens when we get real social networking services on our phones. Think about what happens when we get new interfaces on our phones that don't require us to be looking down and typing when we we are out and about.

This is an area, the intersection between mobile, local, and urban life, that we are particularly excited about. You can see it in our portfolio and you'll be seeing more of it soon. If you are working in this area, please come talk to us."

Beyond Latitude: 4 Innovative Location-Based Apps - ReadWriteWeb
"Google's Latitude was not the first location-based service on the market by any means. Here at RWW, we've been fans of other mobile social networking applications like Loopt and Brightkite as well as location-aware Twitter clients like Twinkle among others. So of course when we ran across some other smaller location-based services, we had to take a look. Each of the services listed below are doing something innovative that goes beyond Google's current offering. We just wish more people knew about them." Bliin, Toaí, Parallel Kingdom, and Radar

New tools for the street: outside.in Radar for the iPhone - Boing Boing
"There are a hundred iPhone apps that let you find a nearby Italian restaurant. And that's great -- finding a nearby restaurant is a useful function. But I think a lot of us want something more out of the geo-web; we want the grain and the serendipity of human conversations and gossip to help us explore physical space."

outside.in - RADAR
"Radar puts you at the center of the map and shows you everything going on nearby, wherever you are—from the stories on your street, to the events in your neighborhood, to the headlines in your city."

"The easiest way to keep track of what’s happening on your block, in your neighborhood and all over your city — like restaurant inspections in Chinatown, crimes in the Loop or everything around 473 Kent Ave."

AndrewBlum.net: Local Cities, Global Problems: Jane Jacobs in an Age of Global Change
"Jacobs wrote that “word does not move around where public characters and sidewalk life are lacking.” Now it does. There are the people paused at the top of the subway stairs, occupying two spaces at once, one physical, one virtual."
