Today in Connected Consumer

With so much attention and VC money being lavished on local and location-based services these days, it was inevitable that would start aggregating their data. Now we have at least two. Hyper-local newswire Fwix will begin incorporating restaurant specials, real estate listings, Foursquare etc. and package it into a widget local bloggers can attach to their site. Social city and nightlife app buzzd, meanwhile, will now start aggregating check-in data from Foursquare, Gowalla and the rest. Next, someone will start super-aggregating the aggregations.
