Peter Semmelhack (Bug Labs)--Bug is releasing a set of open-source hardware modules. These gadgets can be connected together in any fashion and coded to interact as desired. Two of the first modules were a GPS and an accelerometer. What do you think you would do with access to a fully open device with those capabilities? Unsurprisingly, their steadily growing developer community has been building location-based apps. A location-based alarm clock. A proximity-based todo list. As more modules are released the usefulness for the geohacking community increases.
Since 2004, the Where 2.0 Conference has been the place where the grassroots and leading edge developers building location aware technology intersect with the businesses and entrepreneurs seeking out location apps, platforms, and hardware to gain a competitive edge. In the O'Reilly conference tradition, Where 2.0 presents leading trends rather than chasing them.
