Evidence of the vastness of the internet
I used to think that there were little or no academic articles/research into LBS and tourism. Well, how wrong I was! Just type 'location-based tourism' into Google Scholar and violà, tons of results. It's somewhat annoying I have to pay US$30 or thereabouts for access to some of the articles, so I'm not sure if I'll get those... I suppose I could get reimbursed, but I'm not even 100% sure it'll be useful to me.
Will blog more about the results of my Google Scholar search later.
