Against Exactitude
 / 

The super-smart Matt Jones, writing about location-based services: “I still maintain, perhaps foolishly – that sharing hereish/soonish/thereish/thenish is more interesting than exactly-here/exactly-now.”

Jones works on Dopplr. I wish the frequency of my globe-trots was such that I could actually make use of this site, because it seems so clever and well-crafted. But, you don’t have to use it to appreciate Dopplr’s mission, as articulated by Jones: “optimising the future via the coincidences [it coordinates].”

What a great thing for a product to aspire to. Mostly because it sounds kinda like something that a magic talisman in Harry Potter might do.
