“As in all cemeteries, there are careful records kept of the exact location of each interment, often using modern survey techniques such as GIS.”

- from a discussion of eco-cemeteries sourced to reference.com reprinted at the Vail Trail.

That from pocket-lint. Two thoughts:

- Kind of late, eh Kodak?

Ok, I’m not a FaceBook person, but when I saw Local Matters, Perry Evans’ (former MapQuest guy and regular speaker at our LI event) company connected to it, I read on.The app called Go Where allows FaceBook users to “send” their friends to real or ficticious places. Evans explains in his blog that for now the idea is to have some fun, but he suggests this may turn into something more useful down the road. The “hliarous” part? One of Local Matters folks, the one heading social networking used to be with The Onion.

I’d not heard of outside.in until I had lunch with one of the folks from Fanuiel Media over the summer. The website provides location-based news, social networking and other goodies. But, since I’d not heard of it, I guess it’d not reached me. But, things are looking up - an location-based ad server is in the works and some top names ponied up money a second time: Union Square Ventures, Village Ventures, John Seely Brown, Esther Dyson, and John Borthwick.

Twice (that’s This Week in Consumer Electronics) spills the beans on Mio’s plans for a “black Friday block party.” The idea is to demo new GPS devices give out coffee and donuts and the like to folks waiting for stores to open the day after Thanksgiving. The big lure this year is likely to be $99 GPSs. Mio is currently the #4 GPS maker.
