Podcast: Glympse launches mobile location sharing

There's a new player in mobile location sharing that enables people to send a link to a map of their location that anyone can follow on the web.

Location-based services like Loopt have been around for a few years, but a new player--Glympse, is launching its public beta service. Glympes CEO and co-founder Bryan Trussel says that his service is easier to use and safer because a user allows him or herself to be tracked for a specified period of time--never more than four hours--so that once it expires they are no longer transmitting their location.
