Foursquare is a social networking tool that lets your friends know exactly where you are.If you check-in online to a place more than anyone else, you become the “mayor.”

That’s what happened to Jason Cyr. He won today’s competition by staying the mayor of Sail Pavilion at the Riverwalk at exactly 2:04 this afternoon.
