Liz’s rant: Not your old school foursquare

Why am I always the last to know about these things? Why is it the first person to know always seems to be my younger brother? I’m talking about foursquare, a relatively new application for cell phones that allows you to check in at the places you visit, earn points and discounts and even become mayor!
