Join ReadWrite for a discussion with Foursquare's Dennis Crowley
The summer of 2014 is shaping up to be one of those critical times in technology when new platforms emerge and fast-moving companies seize the resulting opportunities. In the age of wearable and connected devices, who will take charge?
One of the surprise contenders is Foursquare, which has become a vital component of other apps like on-demand transportation service Uber and Pinterest, the visual search engine. Suddenly Foursquare is in the midst of a comeback and has become the favorite way for mobile-app developers to add location as a feature - which is an essential piece for our wearable tech future.
Join ReadWrite editor-in-chief Owen Thomas for an evening discussion with Foursquare founder and CEO Dennis Crowley as they talk about why location databases could become a key way that wearable devices link us with nearby businesses and people, future platforms - and why 2014 is the year that location-based services will really pay off.
