“What3Words Is a Mess”

Nick Herr, usually writing about Apple-related topics, writes about What3Words:

But I stumbled across this amazing catalogue of how What3Words is insufficient for emergency use. This comes by way of a Twitter thread where the queue to see Queen Elizabeth’s coffin has apparently stretched as far away as North Carolina and California.

Apparently, four of the seven locations announced until yesterday afternoon were incorrect because of minor typos.

What3Words isn’t fit for purpose, not for any purpose, really. The more people realise this, the better, especially the ones outside the usual geo crowd.
