Digital patents and ideas

Erik Sherman of yesterday picked up on a patent that was awarded to Facebook that could affect the way Foursquare and other geo-location social apps do business.

To summarize the patent, it involves sharing updates from a mobile device and allocating your geographical position along with it to a social network. Now that is what Foursquare is about and it is also what Facebook Places is about.
