(Four)Squaring off

Yup. Looks about right.

I’ve never been an early adopter of technology, but I am an early discarder: AOL, MySpace, Gay.com, Twitter, all summarily dispatched after they become more trouble than they were worth.

I’m not quite done with Foursquare, but I have decided to modify how I check in. No more fanatical daily check-ins to keep a mayorship (or, in my case, two mayorships) at the office, the place I get my hair cut, or the gym.* No more caring about how many points I have.

I’m gonna use it solely to inform my Foursquare friends of cool places I’m at — as an implicit invitation (“Drinks at Windsor for anyone who’s available!”), to incite discussion (“I’m at Target — do we need anything at the house?”) or just as a form of bragging (“Hello, Martha Stewart Media!”).

I do still want those damn badges, though.

* OK, I was never mayor of the gym. But I was mayor of the tanning side for a while.
