For when you gotta go on the go
June 13, 2007: I've been bothered by the raft of mobile informational services that don't take into account the real context of use. When would I ever want to find something as generic as "pizza" in a given location? OK, maybe ice cream, but still while walking around a city I either want something really specific (e.g. where's the nearest Blue Bottle coffee) or something more general but of an editorially (or socially) vetted quality (e.g. show me a cool place to read for an hour near here). So, I have to give a shout out to MizPee, which is an old idea (and probably not implemented right), but at least it's something immediately useful enough to get me to bother with the mobile web.
