Why I Don't Check In On Foursquare

When I was at South by Southwest in Austin a few weeks ago, checking in on Foursquare and Gowalla was useful as it helped people know where I was and friends reciprocated letting me know where they were at. It was also somewhat novel being able to get new badges and show up on the Foursquare leaderboard, but weeks later I never check in on the application. Simply put: there is no incentive for me to check in.
