Sunday Brunch Breakfast Links

I lifted this from Ace. Wow. When I have been in the suburbs of Chicago this summer, clouds of mosquitoes have descended on me. It’s as bad as any summer I remember. Of course, all the new wind power turbines are killing bats and birds, so we are losing a lot of bug eaters.

I have been messing around with Foursquare for a while. Someone tell me, what’s the point? It’s better to check in on Facebook if you want to hook up with friends. Sometimes there is the rare occasion that a business gives you something for checking in. However, I can pay for the free root beer myself thank you very much. Foursquare doesn’t seem to be worth the time to me on a cost/benefit analysis right now.

      got some twitter spam about it. some companies see some value in it. I don’t know though. I see Twitter, LinkedIn FB, G+, and other “loose” social networks like Yelp, Trip Advisor, etc. Foursquare is already on FB with the “Check in”. Why doesn’t FB just enter and kill their business?
