Thoughts on Location

There are now multiple services that let you shout your location to all your friends -- and a lot of strangers. I'm not keen on them. This essay is a very good description of why not. They can be convenient, but they really do invite trouble. This kind of thing would be convenient if we had made our communities and our world safer first; in current circumstances, they are likely to be more trouble than they're worth.
