Idea: a chain of popup stores. (I don't know what it even means, but it seems like everything is now either a chain or a popup store.)
Foursquare is already getting press, even though it's not released and Dens still won't let me blog about it. Oh wait, does this count?
They really need to add Pinche Taqueria to the database so I can become the Mayor of it.

Best part: "If you keep doing the same things over and over again, if you go to the same place several times a week, your points get taken away." I think that's grounds for the Magician to sue.

"... How did you get here? It was your friend, Tad Allagash, who powered you in here. You started out on the Upper East Side with champagne and unlimited prospects, strictly observing the Allagash rule of perpetual motion: one drink per stop. Tad's mission in life is to have more fun than anyone else in New York City, and this involves a lot of moving around, since there is always the likelihood that where you aren't is more fun than where you are."

It would be dope to see that same tech applied to parenting. I would be motivated to become the mayor of the Denver Zoo or the Science Museum cuz I take my kids there so much. Every time I cave to a Happy Meal or Play Land request I lose points. I got an iPhone 2 days ago so bear with me as I digest all this awesomeness. #latetothegame
