My Personal Supermap

Via Unmediated, the GPS-enabled TrackStick has a very limited, but possibly very interesting function: “It tracks where it goes, and it remembers where it’s been.” Although Telespial Systems, the company behind TrackStick, seems to be most excited about its snooping potential — Spy on your kids! Watch your employees! — I love the idea that I could keep it in my pocket for a few months and produce an incredibly detailed map of my life.

There's a lot of neat (read:CRAZY) stuff happening in the LoMoSo space that mirrors this level of coolness without requiring specific hardware, via a software download to your GPS enabled phone. MoLoGoGo is a good example.

bonus challenge: work "LoMoSo" into a conversation this weekend.

I'd love to know if anyone has actually tried one of these things.. I'm considering bringing them into SA..
