Beyond Where: Kakiloc at Barcamp Ottawa

Kakiloc marries social networks and location based services.  Via handsets and via a web portal, it allows you to broadcast your location, and find the locations of your closest friends.  It’s jammed full of features like reminders, and rules that allow you to specify things like “When my girlfriend is within one kilometer, let me know”, so you can grab lunch together… and, like LinkedIn, it includes friend of friend capabilities, so that you can be notified when there are people nearby who might be interesting to meet.  Kakiloc envisions this capability being used at tradeshows, for instance. 

Cool, with lots of potential.
