Google Latitude

I checked out Google Latitude yesterday, pretty cool, kinda a mobile extension of google maps that allows you to see where your friends are and interact with them. When I logged in i already had a request from my friend David Petherick, in the UK, he is contributing editor to the Next Web Blog. I was able to see him take a stroll thru his town today, and had I been in his ‘hood we could of met up for coffee or something.

David wrote a pretty comprehensive analysis on Google Latitude that you should check out, it’s “ten reasons why I think it will succeed

One interesting item I noticed was that Google also has a status update field, hmmm wonder where they are going with that 🙂

  1. 1. It’s Google.
  2. 2. It’s Viral.
  3. 3. Everything is local.
  4. 4. It’s Desktop and Mobile.
  5. 5: I am the most important person in the world. You come second.
  6. 6. Everyone understands Maps.
  7. 7. Uncomplicated sharing.
  8. 8. That’s not Latitude. That’s just an upgrade…
  9. 9. They still don’t get it. But they will.
  10. 10. And What’s next?
