More on the Patton Boggs/FortiusOne App’s Origins

I guess I didn’t connect the dots on Patton Boggs’ mapping app for the inauguration. Apparently the company is a lobbying organization that traditionally hosts a party. Per BusinessWeek:

One lobbying powerhouse, Patton Boggs, is foregoing sponsoring a party this year in favor of providing its clients with GPS-assisted mapping software that allows them to track real-time locations of events and available tables at restaurants, parking spots, schedules, and other information that is particularly useful to avid inauguration-goers. The application also distributes real-time reports from users on useful tips, sentiments, and, no doubt, Obama sightings.
