ScreenScape's location-based integration merits TechCrunch feature

September 14, 2010 by Dave Haynes

Getting a write-up in a blog is always nice, but in the big picture, normally no big deal.

However, getting written up in one of the most heavily-trafficked technology blogs around is quite another matter.

So it was nice to see little ScreenScape, from Prince Edward Island in Canada, get a nice write-up in TechCrunch today about its Foursquare integration work. I’m a reliable TC reader, and know any attention to digital signage is rare, and coveted. This is a blog with influence and reach.

Locamoda also gets some love in the post.

I have yet to grasp the whole location-based thing, and why people want to be the Mayor of their local bagel place. But I am north of 50 and dumb as a brick, so there’s clearly more than I am seeing. That said, I really, really don’t get the notion of using store check-ins and signs to play games, as is suggested here.

Whatever the case, I would imagine founder Mark Hemphill in PEI and CEO Kevin Dwyer, 3 or 4 freeway ramps up from me in the Toronto-area, will be happy for this attention.

    I’m only 30 and I agree with you Dave. foursquare is simply a specialty app for narcissists. 99.99% of people will never care about who the mayor of their local bagel shop is.
