Data overlay

The physical and virtual worlds are blurring. The popularity of geo-location tools is an early indication of what the future holds for digital/physical integration. Currently, this integration exists mainly to communicate your location with your physical network or splash a bit of digital graffiti on a business or organization. Sites like historypin seem like a logical extension of basic location-based social networks and offer exciting learning opportunities through historical or multi-perspective data overlay on existing physical spaces.
