Fire Eagle Launches

Tom Coates took the stage at ETech in San Diego to announce the developer release of Fire Eagle.

Fire Eagle is a system that brokers location information. It is designed to help users safely share information about their location with sites, services and people on the Internet.

Want to easily make your site react to a user's location? Or maybe you've found a way to capture someone's location and want to find cool things to plug it into?

Tom explains the thinking behind the project and how it works.

NOTE:We experienced some audio issues from the A/V's sound board.
