We Know What You Did Last Summer; Location Data

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Soon we will have the ability to know where everyone is all the time. We will have some fun seeing how people are dealing with that today, and think practically how we use that opportunity for good in the future.

Our phones, apps, shared photos, tweets, and messages all give us opportunities to share our location constantly, which many of us do without thinking. The companies that provide our interactive experiences and devices have a lot of location data about us. This creates great opportunities and requires us to think about the right way to use people’s location data.
