image I’ve talked briefly about my feelings on location based social networks (here, here and here).

Louis Gray tackled this topic at length.

This is a pithy post that will be a public demonstration of just how sedentary my lifestyle is. I’ve added a new feature to the front page of  I’ve turned on Google Latitude (screenshotted to the right).

How do I feel so secure constantly sharing my location? First of all, my home address is pretty much common knowledge to anyone who cares to find it (a quick Google for me will turn it up, I imagine). Second of all, my home security system (that is to say, my wife’s massive cricket bat) is top notch. Third and finally – I very seldom leave the house.

Sure, I could replace the widget with a simple PNG image of my house taken from a satellite view.
