Thanks to

Pat Patterson
for pointing out that “Location is certainly an attribute of identity; in fact, Liberty published the

ID-SIS Geolocation Service Specification
in April this year. The Geolocation Service makes a user’s current location available (with the user’s consent, of course!) to other web services. So, for example, wireless subscribers could receive a daily SMS on their cellphone giving them the weather forecast for their current location.”

By coincidence, a local Phoenix television station ran a segment Tuesday evening on

Tracking your Teenagers
with GPS.

If anyone knows of location-enabled applications that combine virtual directory services and GPS, please let me know.
