There are many reasons to dislike Foursquare: everyday activities are reduced to extrinsic motivation; bad diets now have spatial representations (How many times can I check in at McDonald’s, Bro?); internet stalking gets creepier. But, as with all deplorable mobile applications, their success isn’t for naught. Given some time, a little brainstorming, and the egging on of like-minded people, the application version of “A Modest Proposal” gets developed. Foursquare, meet Mark Your Territory (http://www.markyourterritory.org/):
Mark Your Territory is a new system that lets individuals check-in to foursquare by physically urinating at the actual location.
