HoHoTo party, which was joined by people who were mostly in Toronto’s start-up, IT, PR and media communities, raised more than $48,424 for the Daily Bread Food Bank by Wednesday evening. It was organized, like last year, through Twitter!

I’ve been testing out a few tools such as
Instamapper for showing one’s location and referred back to some old ones below. Tools such as Brightkite ( my map), Platial ( my map) and Google Latitude ( my map) can be synced to one’s mobile phone. This could be used to show people where you are, if near, yet allow one to be off the grid so to speak. Have you ever wondered who in the neighbourhood might be up for joining for lunch or ever wonder where that misplaced phone went? See also Where Are You? Show ‘Em With Google Latitude, in the New York Times, and I Am Here: One Man’s Experiment With the Location-Aware Lifestyle, in WIRED.
Where are you? Consider the map tool below. Please add yourself.
