Geographic information based searching from HP labs

One of my many hats is as a co-chair for HP’s global technical conference. We were having a discussion the other day about utilizing technology in conferences to improve the experience both for those who can make it to the conference as well as those who cannot.

One technology from HP labs mentioned was HP Gloe. This is a geo-tagging experiment from HP Labs that maps Web content to specific geographic locations. Gloe aims to provide a platform for location-based discovery of information for mobile Web users, a rapidly growing audience. Gloe is available on a number of mobile platforms as well as windows so naturally I loaded it onto my new Pre. There is also an API for developers to extend the capabilities as well.
