So many standards to choose fromVertical Towers of Siloed Location DataThere is a vast amount of location data already out there on the net. But without Fire Eagle this location data is disconnected, each in its own vertical tower according to the vendor, the web site or the origin of the data ...
... some is wifi based ...
... some is GPS based ...
... some is mobile based ...
... and some is a combination of all of these types and more23
Aggregate all location sources under the users controlFire Eagle provides a way to connect these different silos and provides location sharing and integration that the user is in control of2425

Its not about where you are Alwaysordinary on Flickr : http://www.flickr.com/photos/sempre_ordinario/3492703820/Your location is both powerful and valuable. Its far less about where you currently are 75
its about where youve beenJrusbatch on Flickr : http://www.flickr.com/photos/jrusbatch/3626348821/ and much more about where youve been; home, school, work, holiday.
Lets call this your location stream. Its deeply personal information. I touched on responsible, well thought out, location services but how do you tell? Theres some pretty crucial questions you should ask yourself before you start to use a location service, any location service. So heres a list of points you should bear in mind when deciding on whether to use a location service ... call it an opt in location manifesto

Jemimahknight on Flickr : http://www.flickr.com/photos/10294984@N08/2747495411/There comes a point where you realise thatyoure not on the web,youre in the webThese are not decisions someone can make for you. You, as an individual, need to assess whether you feel comfortable with allowing a third party access, albeit limited access, to your data and to your location.78
