iFIND, a Java-based project developed at the MIT SENSEable City Lab aims to improve social networking location-aware application. Using iFIND, we and our buddies can instantaneously exchange our locations on the MIT campus, talk to users nearby, and microcoordinate more effectively.
It puts us on our own map of campus, and not other people's, unless we give them permission. The iFIND project turns every laptop into something like a precise Global Positioning System unit that can spot users down to the room they're sitting in and then share that location with friends and colleagues, without uploading their personal information onto a central network. >>
