Robert Scoble, Liar

Robert Scoble: “But all this liking, er, lying, has me thinking. Just how accurate is all that data that Foursquare is collecting? After all, are you checking in only at cool places? Or are you also checking in at gas stations, super markets, or other lower-class places that you don’t really want to advertise that you’re at?”

Ahhh, the new version of “Keeping up with the Joneses.” Personally, I don’t care what you think about me. When I have a smartphone I’ll check-in at places I actually visit. Yeah, I go to Taco Bell. Yeah, I’ve actually had a few KFC Double Downs, so what, you got a problem with that?

I didn’t think so.

    heh. I’m “mayor” on 4Sq of many junk places, including a McD’s in my son’s college town 2h30m drive from my home!

    Yeah, I’d by mayor at some strange places myself, I’m sure. Robert’s a pretty open guy, I’m surprised he’d actually think about stuff like this.

    Maybe he’s just trying to make a point?
