Google Latitude: Twitter for GPS?

TOGB: See where your friends are with Google Latitude

Well if the privacy advocates weren't nervous before, they gotta be chain smoking paranoid now.

Google Latitude is a new
service that will allow people to easily update and send their GPS location data to a person or group.  Basically a twitter for location information.

Is a completely opt-in system, so no one should get information that you aren't comfortable giving out, but I'm sure that won't keep privacy groups around the globe from freaking out about it.  I actually find the idea quite intriguing.  It's avail for WinMo now and will soon have an iPhone app available which I will surely install.  Anyone want to stalk me virtually?
