Simple Foursquare Data Hacking by @jm3
# I love Foursquare as a service for documenting urban adventures and sharing them with my friends,
# but the website's UX has some gaps. After last week’s trip to New York I wanted to share the list
# of spots I visited with some curious friends, but soon discovered that foursquare.com can't do that.
# As a quick side project, I hacked up a quick unix+ruby process for extracting custom chunks of your
# foursquare timeline as well-formatted text, for sharing or further post-processing + annotating.
# This is a fairly brittle, quick hack, but it could be useful as a jumping off point for you, so I'm
# sharing it here. My next step will probably be to make a simple renderer to display trips more nicely.
