Staying connected with Dodgeball

Whether followers of Jesus go to a worship service or not (see sunday’s post), they do tend to stay connected. Many of them turn up yearly at large festivals to “check in” to the wider family, and during the week they are in and out of each others houses.
I was wondering if anyone in USA was using Dodgeball social software to stay connected – it lets you know when you are within 10 blocks of any of your friends-of-friends. Not available here in London yet.

Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)

  • Andrew, you are always discovering the coolest, most interesting new Web technologies. Thanks for bringing us in the loop on a regular basis! I see that Dodgeball isn’t available yet in my area, but that will be interesting when it does.
    My question is: How long will it be before one of these “social networking” sites (e.g. Meetup, Friendster, Orkut, etc.) really wraps up the whole package and offers the same type of service that Dodgeball provides. It seems like only a matter of time for one of these sites (perhaps Meetup? or Friendster?) to rise to the top …
