MIT's iFind Service
In the past decade, various developments have led to the ability to combine location awareness, network-based collaboration and social networking into a single tool. MIT's new service for students, iFind, is the first notable example of this integration.
Developed at MIT's Senseable City Lab, the Wi-Fi-based iFind provides a novel way to let groups of people find one another, set up meeting times or work together. Although ideal for a campus environment, it isn't restricted to academia. And it's available under an open-source license rather than embedded in a vendor solution.
