CIO weekly wrap-up: What is Foursquare's draw? Also Balanced Scorecard
Happy soggy Monday from the rain-soaked East Coast! We’ve had a pretty easy winter so far, but these April showers sure are coming early and strong.
So, I’ve seen a lot in the mainstream media this week about FourSquare and other technology services that allow you to tell people where you are. Last week, Twitter also began asking me if I’d like to include my location with my Tweets. I don’t have a big desire to tell people where I am 24-7, but maybe there’s more to it than that. So what is Foursquare’s appeal? If you’re signed up for FourSquare, I’m interested in hearing about why you use it.
