Java API for Plazes

I’ve blogged about Plazes before. Just to note that a Java API is now available. Pretty cool.

  1. So will you tell me how it works?


  2. Basically it's a way of tracking where you are in the world, using a small client application that runs on your machine and attempts to work out your location based on the network address. You can see the concept as having 3 parts:

    1. location tracking of invidividuals
    2. building a database of network locations (plazes)
    3. building a community i.e. you can find out who is geographically near you, who discovered particular plazes, add buddies, etc..
