More Work To Be Done
by Kevin Pomfret, Spatial Law and Policy Blog, April 2, 2011
I recently attended two conferences related to location technology. The first, “Mobile Devices, Location Technologies and Shifting Values” was hosted by the Center on Law and Information Policy on March 25, 2011 at the Fordham Law School and focused on the legal and policy issues associated with location and mobile devices. The second, “Enterprise Strategies for Location Intelligence”, hosted by the wherebusiness.com on March 30-31, addressed the challenges businesses will face in trying to integrate location information into their enterprises.
Both of the events were well run and I learned a good deal. However, I was also struck by the disconnect between the issues the legal community seem to be focused on and the issues facing the business and technology community with respect to location technology.
