A Like button for Life.  
    Technologies used: Buzz, Locative, Goggles
    It's an on screen widget, can plug it into Checkins or Facebook or whatever (pubhubsub?).  Pressing signifies approval of something in immediate environment.  Camera, speech or locative clarifies intent (Goggles, Gingerbread IO or Places).  Maybe people too.  Could be expanded to do a pulse input for ratings.  tap thru tap-tap-tappity-tap-press for one to five stars or some other metric, maybe just use rocker or slider bar.  that's incidental though, not feature critical.  I imagine the hardest part of this concept is creating an adaptive and input minimalistic intent sensor.  Since media companies are already throwing in watermarks, why not a visual or aural QR code for easy identification?
