Today's vocab word: geofencing

Today Flickr rolls out geofencing, which is a privacy setting that lets you specify a location (your home, maybe), set a perimeter around that location and only let specific viewers access those pictures. Very useful when you're tagging pics of your "check out my gigantic, new flat screen TV" party and you don't want thieves lurking.
