privatesquare is a simple web application to record and manage a private database of foursquare check-ins.

It uses the foursquare API as a single-sign-on provider, for user accounts, and to query for nearby locations (using your web browser's built-in geolocation support).

Check-ins can be sent on to foursquare (and again re-broadcast to Twitter, etc. or to your followers or just "off the grid") but the important part is: They don't have to be.

Meanwhile, here's the blog post announcing privatesquare when it was released in January 2012 and an update on the project from September 2012.
