Each trip is the central ‘social object’ of Dopplr... Here’s my trip page for

Where next?
IxDA08 - aggregated here are nice things like the flickr pictures i’ve taken this
trip, notes by me and friends of mine and stats about travel here. But the main
thing to look at is the ‘Coincidences’ block - showing me the other people I
share information with on Dopplr who are going to be here. Not such a suprise
Where next?
to me right now, but leading up to the conference it was nice to see names
gather there...
Where next?

  • Noted the bit about quantum mechanics etc. Have you checked out Critical Mass by Philip Ball, equating/studying models of physics/natural world into social processes such as phase transitions? Found it v.useful.

  • guestc73c3e (I knew a burly navvy by that name many moons ago) - free and useful? No reference to Heisenberg's widget of intertwingliness required, then.

  • 'the experience of modern life, and modern travel in particular, is so obviously contexzzz... blah blah cut and paste pr blurb here blah...... where you run into a friend who lives in Oslo ...that's the type of intertwingled weirdness that Dopplr's about.'

    Re my friend from Oslo. Presumably if we're both Dopplr users then we already know we're both in the same location. So there's a net reduction in serendipity, compensated only by an equivalent increase in web 2 flim-flam.

  • You may as well simply say that, since reality consists of different things at different places and times, it's contextual in that sense. Why poor benighted Albert is dragged in, I don't know - unless it's to make someone look clever.

    As for quantum mechanics 'demonstrating' (!) that reality is fuzzy - well, the simplest correct thing to say is that it doesn't.

    Reference to Kuhn FTW.

    All very pretty, though.
