This LIVE Chat has been nominated for the Golden Kitty Award of LIVE Chat of the Year! Cast your vote before Sunday December 20th at 5pm PST and see the full list of nominees here. @dens is the Co-founder & CEO of @foursquare. In his own words, "Hey hey I'm Dennis Crowley. I’ve been working on “building things that make cities easier to use” since I was in grad school at NYU. My grad school thesis turned into my first company, Dodgeball, which we sold to Google in 2005. For the past six years, we've been building Foursquare and Swarm, which are now used by more than 50M people around the world every month! Most of you probably know us for our two apps. The Foursquare app can help you find great places literally anywhere in the world and Swarm turns every day into a game as you check-in to earn coins, stickers and mayorships. The company is also hard at work behind the scenes tackling technical challenges. We've built a contextual awareness engine that allows us send all those smart pings to your phone and smartwatch and ad targeting technology (Pinpoint) that helps brands connect w/ people based on places they go. I also enjoy such things as snowboards, soccer, fixing broken dirt bikes, shooting arrows and throwing axes. Ask me anything!" Check out Dennis' LIVE Chat in full here.
