Google Latitude

So this is pretty crazy — Google is releasing Latitude, a way of seeing where other people are via cellphone GPS if they allow you to (and vice versa, of course). Given the conversations we’ve had in classes about the erosion of privacy, the use of cellphone devices as an extension of the senses, and the idea that we are always and forever connected and ‘on’, this is an interesting development from the major player.
