Directions and maps are most useful when you are on the road. Newer devices, laptops, and mobile phones know their (and thus your) location and can make that location available to you, your social network, and your network operator. These devices are also internet connected. Soon everyone will have them. Is the web ready for location? Are you ready for your location to be broadcast? Should your location be passed in every http request? Join Brady Forrest as he discusses the location-enabled future with four companies that are making it happen.
