This week for OMG/JK, the show on TechCrunch TV that I do with fellow writer Jason Kincaid, we decided to switch things up a bit. Because there was a major announcement, Facebook Places, that we both covered, we decided to devote the entire show to that one topic. Yes, it’s a little longer than usual (about 20 minutes), but I think the conversation is pretty interesting and dynamic.
Obviously, we talk about what Facebook’s entry into the location space means for all the other players that are already there — namely, Foursquare, Gowalla, Google, and Twitter. Are Foursquare and Gowalla dead? Are Google and Twitter screwed? Has Facebook already screwed up the privacy aspect of this? Watch us debate it above.
