Fight Registrastination. Register to vote!07 September 2008
Apologies to international readers, this spam message is intended for citizens of the USA only. Thanks for understanding.
Have a friend that hasn’t registered to vote yet? Do your civic duty by guilting them into action. Help them fight registrastination by sharing a link to a big bold deadline.
Here’s a few other things that one might also look at if they were making a location aware application:
- Google Maps API: Geocoding
- Gears GeoLocation API
- Parse a Facebook user’s location.
- Twitter’s API only provides update_location, not a way to get the current location.
- As mentioned above, MaxMind’s IP Address Geocoding Service
- Yahoo’s FireEagle, BrightKite, Plazes, and Dopplr
MaxMind’s seemed the best fit for my use case: guessing the State of an anonymous user.
