Anti Social Networks came out of Stealth mode today and annouced $16 million funding for their GPS based solution. Paul Kedrosky has an interesting perspective on it:

I’m stuck on something: If you had a best route from A to B, would you ever tell anyone? Unlike other social networks, traffic is an example of an application where there is little incentive to help anyone. It is, at least superficially, a poster child of a class of services I like to call “anti-social networks”.
