Walking Pier 39 with MapJack. Going where no cars have gone before.

March 18, 2008

I know its research tuesday and I will post a few interesting reads from McGonigal and SSRN a little later on but for now more MapJack goodness.

You thought you were alone walking along San Fran’s Pier 39 on a sunny day about year ago. Did you notice someone with a weird camera pack? Well apparently they noticed you. True to its marketing statements MapJack has mapped a number of pedestrian only walk-ways and judging by peoples faces their camera rig must have really stood out.

What others have done with NASA budgets and Star Wars-like equipment, we’ve done on a shoestring budget, along with a few trips to Radio Shack.

This is by far one of the coolest privacy invading uses of technology I’ve seen in a while. I cant wait till they map central park, so many “quickies” in the park to be captured for the world to see, so little time.
