Plazes: Locative social software

Saturday, 24 November 2007

Plazes added the “Where?” to communities. Here is an excerpt from the FAQ, the Question is “Why do you call a Plaze a Plaze and not a location?”

“A Plaze represents much more than just a location. It is the identity that you give to a physical location. So, for instance, a restaurant and an office are both located on “111 MacDougal Street, NYC. In this case you have one location, but two Plazes. (Hey, it’s the context that counts)
Every Plaze has its own permalinkable page that consists of pictures, comments, a map, and a list of people who have visited the Plaze.”
