Where 2.0

O'Reilly has a conference called Where 2.0 which is all about location based technology stuff. Wired ran a short piece yesterday covering some of the highlights. I'm not much of a geo-nerd the way some of these people are, but I do think location based computing is going to be a huge thing.

It hasn't "hit" yet, and I'm not sure when it will or how exactly it will play out. But as computing moves off the desktop and into the network (web services and all that), I do think a whole range of location based services will emerge that one can tap into from a cell phone.

I don't know what the killer app there is; if I did I'd be working on it. I do know that if I were a partner in a venture capital firm I'd definitely want some money in this space.
