At DLD yesterday in Munich, I interviewed Dennis Crowley, CEO and co-founder of the currently hot location-based service Foursquare. He touched on a lot of topics in the short 20-minute allotted time, including genesis of Foursquare, adoption of the still-nascent service, and revenue models. The text coverage of the interview, here. Some highlights, also from DLD’s official coverage:
– Foursquare could be tied into all kinds of services. Through location awareness you could hook Foursquare up not just to restaurants, but also deliver content based on context.
– Check-in will become a commodity, every service will have check-in functionality.
– Aggregation could be interesting. And whats the magic that can happen after you checked in?
– Foursquare is lining up interesting partnerships, expect some announcement over the next few months.
