Mapillary: See The Map, Add Photos To the Map, Be The Map | MIT Technology Review

Mapillary: See The Map, Add Photos To the Map, Be The Map  | MIT Technology Review | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

Mapillary is a cool idea. Why run up and down city blocks taking pictures when your customers, advocates and contributors could do that for you. What it means to be a MAP is changing fast.

Maps used to be those things you couldn't fold back up. Now maps are evolving into evolving stage sets. You need one "map" when its six pm and time for dinner.

You need another map when you need groceries or toys for Christmas. As the line between virtual and real world collapse "map" is going to take on many new meanings.

With GPS "Map" means place, time and tribe. Why tribe? Because, as FourSquare proved our phones are smart enough to know when our friends' phones are around us.

Phones become living avatars walking a digital landscape by proxy, roads we wold walk if we could TRON-UP and jump into the machine. Since we can't become digital just yet MAP will take on many new meetings.

Extend our new "map thinking" a little further and maps become games, commerce and content. These new "digital maps" will be how we tell time, know and relate to our friends and understand PLACE.

Mapillary sees the future. They know maps are more than those things we used to not be able to fold back up :).

More Than What is Said
The importance of this week's #cloudtalk Hangout On Air is what Brian does with Periscope, Meerkat and Youtube. Brian was simultaneously creating conversations using "real time video" in three channels.

The power of real time video CAN'T BE OVERSTATED. I didn't understand Periscope until Mark Traphagen went for a walk in Duke Garden. As Mark walk, shooting a real time video, he SAW me join and could discuss what he was seeing / doing.

WOW, think of real time videos as your way to have a conversation. Real time video breaks down the time delay AND you are left with a product, if you record your sessions, that will help others with similar questions later.

The immediacy is too cool to be denies. We've been wrestling with how to break down the silos between commerce and content. Brian's demonstration has our wheels turning.

@Brian Fanzois a #mustfollow curator too btw :). M
