D.C. Continues to Overshare

Foursquare -- the social networking service that allows burglars to know when you're out -- has reached a new high in the District, reports DCist.

Last October's Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear was Foursquare's most checked-in event in 2010, with 30,525 check-ins that day.

Foursquare posted an infographic calling 2010 "our year of 3400% growth," which means at least someone is possibly making money on the Internet. Maybe. Perhaps.

(By the way, Foursquare also shared the number of "Wendy's who checked in at Wendy's": 224, in case you were wondering.)

D.C. also took two second-place titles -- the National Museum of American History is the #2 most-checked-in "art" gallery, even though it doesn't really have art. And Old Ebbitt Grill made the list of top wine bar. "As DCist puts it, it "really isn't a wine... you know what, we'll take it."

OK, so maybe Foursquare isn't great at identifying types of venues. But when was the last time you grew 3400 percent in one year, huh?
