The issue with the way FireChat does this right now is its user identity system: There isnt one. Anyone can log into a FireChat location-based room, pick her own nickname, and go to town. This might be good for political rooms, and possibly for trash-talking fans of the opposing team in a sporting event, but it has limits. If you dont know whos who and who might be listening, the free-for-all chat can also limit free expression. A future version of the app that has groups, or circles that you can join, could limit who could be in a room. That would be good.
