Publish Your Live Location in RDF (And Be A Geek Again)
Let’s face it. The times when it was enough to put a map with your live GPS location on your blog to prove that you are a gadget-mad geek are gone. Today there’s the iPhone. There’s the SPOT satellite messenger. There’s Google Latitude. There’s Friends on Fire on Facebook. Sad but true. Location sharing is for the cool kids now.
But fret not: with blogloc you can now share your live location – and still be a real geek! How? Just share your location the Semantic Web way! That’s right. If Google Map access is enabled in your Personal Settings, you can now get an RDF representation of your blogloc location. Yeah I know what you’re thinking: “Perfect for my FOAF file!” You bet.
Your personal RDF resides at:
http://geekvault.no5.at/blogloc/rdf/%5Byourusername%5D.rdf (see mine for example)
Note: The RDF contains exact coordinates! Therefore – as always – this URL will be blocked by default to protect your exact location, unless you enable Google Map access in your settings.
