Surveillance used to be reserved for catching criminals (and celebrities in bathing suits). Now, thanks to location-based social media tools, our lives have become an Internet reality show that’s supposedly produced for our own entertainment. Today on the Morning Media Menu podcast, I joined GalleyCat editor Jason Boog to figure out if we should be flattered or completely freaked out.

During the podcast, I shared what I learned at Social Media Week about the potential applications for geosocial technology. There are some amazing tools for connecting with people online in the real world, but convenience comes at a price.  Jason and I hashed out what we loved and dreaded most about the changing social landscape.

Earlier in the podcast, we discussed the untimely death of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Anthony Shadid, who covered the middle east for the New York Times and the Washington Post.
