In case you didn't see the announcement http://www.google.com/latitude/intro.html big brother concerns aside, I can imagine someone publishing a cache and then seeing all the usual suspects converge toward the same spot for the FTF lol

I have to admit that would be awesome. I have seen this and looked into it but I am thinking that I will stay away from because everyone knows that Big Brother is watching. Shocked

Big Brother already knows where I live and where I work, what vehicle I drive, etc etc. If they really want to know where I am then have at it. I'm not going to let the threat of big brother change how I live my life.

If I were a criminal on the run I may think differently. If you notice that I've suddenly dropped off the grid then you can start to wonder...

It is a lot of fun; especially since you can manually set your location. I'm in the middle of the Atlantic!
