On the Prowl at Geekend

Want to make friends at Geekend? This is one way of doing it. Here is my best version of the play-by-play of an interesting evening with fellow geeks in the wings. Please note: I am not a writer or even a storyteller.

Geekend Day 2:  It started off with me unfortunately missing every single daytime session. I was desperately trying to close up my Friday work day so I could enjoy the evening. I was excited to attend the evening keynote with Oscar Gerardo and meet up with some friends. A quick check-in with foursquare and I was ready to enjoy the evening. Read more »

When to use “Off The Grid” on Foursquare

There are two concepts in regards to “Off the Grid”. The foursquare concept is as follows: If you turn all of the little on/off switches to off (on the check in screen, they say who to share with) you’ll be off the grid. Off the grid means you’re hiding your location from the world. Why would you want to check in “off the grid?” You could be on a date, out to dinner with your parents, or someplace you don’t want people to know about; all while still wanting to check in to earn badges and see your check-ins later in your history page (which will include your own private, “off the grid” check-ins).
