Icon Hoarders

One of the things that upset the apple cart with geocaching was the icon hoarders. It seemed as though folks would stop at nothing to get an icon . . . even if it wasn’t kosher.

It seems the same ruthlessness is now setting in at Foursquare. Others are taking note.

This all reminds me of the explanation of spam I once heard. Spam isn’t a technology problem, it’s a people problem. The solution is not a technological one, but a societal one. Seems the same thing with icons . . .

Also blogged on this date . . .
