I cannot believe it is already the 3rd Foursquare Day!!  When we started with the first 4sqDay, the real drama was about who was stronger, Gowalla or foursquare, and whether foursquare would   reach 1M users before 4/16. Time really flies when you are having fun and we now know the answers to both of those questions! How amazing it is to see this event that we started in Tampa continuing all over the world each year. I have been told by many Tampa Bay locals that they are proud that 4sqDay started in Tampa.

I am excited that lots of people, including our Mayor IRL Bob Buckhorn, are getting involved. We have a number of cool events planned this year, that are spaced-out thorough the day and across the city. This is fantastic because I have always wanted to have a diverse group of events that welcome everyone, than one single event. In fact, there are events scattered through the day. Come to one or all!

You can find lots of info about 4sqDay at @4sqdayTampa and our foursquare page.
