FoursquareI hadn’t heard of this one either. I did have a look and couldn’t see it as something I would use so didn’t bother signing up. It could be I don’t understand what its capacity for memorising my movements are i.e.

Does this mean there is a central memory somewhere that records this information? I’m wary of anything that hints of surveillance or has the capacity to encroach on privacy. There are times when, for one reason or another, I simply don’t want to be found – to blend with the faceless and be anonymous in a place of my choice – and there are certainly times I don’t want to remember where I’ve been.
When I do want to publicise an event I tend to use other methods, print invitations, flyers, email, Facebook and other media On the plus side, it does have great maps and this could be useful in the absence of a GPS – or a print copy street directory. This works for me.
I have the strongest feeling I have misunderstood this challenge, which is probably all the more reason to leave it be.
