Geo-referenced information is today coupled, stored and accessed not to the location it refers to, but on the server it is stored on. The next step in the (re)evolution of information storage and dissemination will be to couple and store the information in the location to which it refers to. In this paper, we lay the foundations and research questions of a new paradigm for sharing information which we term Hovering Information (Hoverlnfo). Hovering allows for decoupling information from its host and promotes coupling of this information with a specific geographical location. In this regard, hovering information stays "attached" to a specific geographical area. Information hovers from one mobile device to another, in a quest to remain within a specific vicinity and avail itself to users currently present or entering its anchoring geographical location.
