Google Latitide to Status/Blog

badge-largeA close friend (“cc” aka Chris Crosby) sent this to me yesterday but I’m just getting around to checking it out this morning;

http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2009/05/more-ways-to-share-your-google-latitude.html

Two items:

Google Talk location status (beta) automatically updates your Google Talk or Gmail chat status message with your Latitude location.”

“The Google Public Location Badge lets you publish your Latitude location on your blog or website”

I think it’s great to see this data publicized more. That is, making the actual data more publically visible and not limiting it to your chat buddies. While I don’t think most people live very exciting travel lives (work, home, repeat) it will be interesting to see what sort of uses people put this data toward.

Until Latitude is available on the iPhone, it doesn’t do me much good.
