Going, Going, Gowalla!
A lot, lot, lot, lot, lot, lot, lot has been going in our lives lately. All good, and all super-exciting. Some very, very big changes are coming our way, and while they're all good, change sometimes takes getting used to, right?
I haven't had a lot (read=any) time to write about these changes, what's been going on, or what's going to be going on. But someone else has had the time, at least to write a bit about something that is soon to be a big part of my life, and a big, exciting part of my workday: Gowalla. It's a location-based iPhone game from the cool kids at Alamofire (makers of the uber-popular game Packrat). Gowalla taps into the GPS function of the 3G iPhones to create a very fun, very interactive game.
Janette Crawford recently wrote an article for the website PopTech on social gaming and Gowalla specifically. It's entitled Geocaching, Gaming and the Optimistic Future of Human Interaction. It's a great article, and it will give you not only a glimpse into the about-to-be-released iPhone game Gowalla but will also, by association, give you a little glimpse into some of what I'll be doing in the very near future.
