Strong urban cores promote socializing in the city
GIS User
Long commute times and urban areas that leapfrog over open space make it harder for people to socialize, but cities that are decentralized are even worse, University of Utah researchers say in a study published online in the Journal of Transport Geography. "We found that decentralization has 10 times the negative impact of fragmentation, and 20 times that of longer commute times," says Steven Farber, assistant professor of geography at the university.

Foursquare gets $41 million investment despite user apathy
TechWeek Europe
Social location application Foursquare has had an additional $41 million investment, despite disillusion in the industry with what it has achieved with the $100 million it previously raised. Launched in 2009, Foursquare allows users to "check in" to locations to meet friends, but has since shifted its focus to the crowded field of mobile search. Silver Lake Partners, Andreesen Horowitz and Union Square Ventures have given it $41 million, much of it in the form of a loan.
