Foursquare raises 20 million in venture capital

This is the latest article on New York Times: Foursquare

Now, after witnessing a friend on a "getaway country weekend trip"  frantically texting her whereabouts to this service, I still do not quite get it. What is the lure of this thing?
 And why would I want everyone and their grandmother (plus the weird and nasty grand-uncle and the lurking strangers) know where I am, 24 hours of the day? I use Twitter, but this thing escapes me.

Please, enlighten me. :)
