Play The Takeaway's "Where Are You?" game this morning online and on air

Friday, April 03, 2009 - 05:00 AM

We're talking about the online/offline game Foursquare this morning, and we're playing a game on air and online at The Takeaway.

It's easy to play. Call us at 1-877-8-MY-TAKE, email us at mytake@thetakeaway.org, or leave a comment to check in. Tell us where you are and what you're doing. Be as specific as possible. And don't forget to tell us your name or handle!

You know what we're doing right now. It's time to tell us what YOU'RE doing! No matter how mundane or insane! If you're in the kitchen: Call us. If you're on the subway: Call us. Fleeing the country? Call us! You get a point each time you check in. And you'll get bonus points for frequency and outlandishness. Look for a leader board Friday morning at thetakeaway.org.

Read more about the absurd satisfaction of playing Foursquare.

I'm pitching story ideas to my editors at The Takeaway (full disclosure, I'm the science producer), while I sit on my medicine ball at a desk overcrowded with electronic equipment. I'm sitting at my desk in my bedroom that overlooks the rainy back garden here in BK, and I'm gearing up for the long day. I'm writing this post as I stall on taking a shower.
