People ask me why I use Foursquare obsessively. This is why. This is almost every place I went to this past year (2014) with the exception of a few places in Barcelona which I couldn’t check in to because of lack of service. How many places? 1786 in total.


This is a neat idea, although it sort of sucks that it’s currently limited to just three cities in the US: Manhattan, San Francisco, and Portland. But if you’ve gone to any of those 3 places and want a personalized map of your Foursquare checkins, then go to Etch and connect your Foursquare account to […]


Foursquare (in conjunction with Samsung Galaxy S4) has launched the Time Machine, a really neat way to visualize your Foursquare checkin history as one continuous playback. Watch the map light up and bubbles of all different colors as you bounce from place to place. It’s really cool and you should try it out.

Using information fed into Processing, the folks at Foursquare were able to visualize a week’s worth of checkins as they hit their 1 billionth checkin a few months ago.
