Want the Super Swarm Badge? Maybe Foursquare Mobs Can Help You

Yeah I might have written the book on Foursquare (seriously), but I still don’t have a swarm or super swarm badge to my name. That might change soon if Montreal-based Foursquare Mobs has anything to do with it.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

The idea is simple, like planning a Tweetup or Meetup, you log into Foursquare with OAuth (Foursquare Mobs uses the Foursquare API), fill in the form and 


that’s it.

Looks pretty simple to me.

Now, the operative question is, what this will lead to. I don’t really see a business model here. Maybe making deals with venues, but beyond that I think it’s a neat idea that might catch on and get the developers some attention.

Now to plan and event so I can get that swarm badge
