Dopplr is a really cool application that makes it easier for distributed teams to get together. Its essentially a trip planning application but with a strong social element. Do you ever go to a city and then a week later find out that someone on your team was there too and you didn’t know it? IBM today is a truly globalised company, and I know this happens a lot. Many is the time I have seen an IBMer really happy to finally meet someone they have worked closely together for years. So why not accelerate your serendipity with Dopplr.
Dopplr is currently still in limited beta (isn’t everything cool) and normally people can’t register unless they are invited. But
but the firm is savvy enough to have introduce what it calls the Dopplr 100 – that is 100 firms that can self-register. That is Dopplr is saying IBM is one of the cool kids. Sign up here.
disclosure: I share an office with Matt, but I loved the app before I did.
Further disclosure: Matt will think I am super lame if none of you sign up. So get to it.
