Dodgeball & other things

Dodgeball: mobile social software

A really good example of a location-based 'buddy tracking' application, but social software is really a much better term for it! There are so many nifty mobile services out there (many of which are location-based), but they don't really appear on my radar unless someone blogs about it - in this case, it was because Dodgeball was acquired by Google, who definitely look to be trying to dominate the mobile space...

I finally got my own copy of Smart Mobs: The Next Social Revolution by Howard Rheingold as an early birthday present, and so far it's been very enjoyable and inspiring - very, very highly recommended! Then again, if you're interested enough in mobile tech to be reading this blog, it's likely that you've read it already...

By the way, I'm just getting into the 'data collection' part of my thesis research - if you consider yourself to be an expert in the LBS/mobile commerce/tourism field, and will be in Auckland anytime within the next month or so, I would love to hear from you to arrange an interview time! Thanks. =)
