Hi Christine & Welcome to the Read Write Web Community Group!  I very much
enjoyed working with you in the federated web incubator group.

I certainly do see an overlap between what the write web can do, and some
exciting use cases in Augmented Reality.  The idea that you mentioned that
a user can create a message at a geographical point (say lon/lat) and share
it with a group or the public is exactly the kind of thing that write
standards can help to solve in an interoperable way.

I've already heard from at least two people in this group that is
interested in making a privacy aware "check-in" service that can be shared
with a group of friends, for example, to allow them to know where you are
hanging out.

The wiki is completely open to all members and it would be awesome to have
a section on Augmented Reality, as a possible show case of what write
standards on the web can do.
