 METRO's Smart Phones & Mobile Computing SIG will meet on Monday, November 8 from 3:00-4:30pm at METRO, 57 East 11th Street.

The topic will be location-based services (Foursquare, Gowalla, Twitter Places, Facebook, etc.)

Michael Lascarides from New York Public Library will kick off the discussion with his presentation, "The smartphones are coming! Planning for location-based services at the NYPL."

We would love to hear from other types of libraries.  Is your library on Foursquare (or another service)?  Would you like to share your experience (or plans) with the group?  Do you know someone who is doing something creative with geolocation?  If so, please contact one of the SIG's co-conveners.
