A couple of years ago I wrote about a family-aware clock much like the Weasley’s clock, developed by Microsoft – they’ve continued working on it and are ready to have a few families try out the prototype: The Whereabouts Clock. It’s kind of cool – but would depend on family members actually having their mobiles with them, on and charged. Which is probably the case most of the time in many families.

Nah, it’ll just become an implant given when one is born.
That is really cool. I imagine that someone (someone a lot more sophisticated than I), could do something similar with Twitter (though that would mean each person would have to remember to update).
