Jaiku Is Cool

Jaiku Founder Jyri EngeströmOne of the best presentations at the Essential Web event I participated in on Wednesday was from Jaiku. I downloaded the client onto my N73 while the guy was talking and had it up and running in minutes (Ok — I had to sign in using the regular S-60 browser — I should have been able to create an account using the client — but it was still a pretty good experience). The service is somewhat like twitter (“microblogging” as their founder, Jyri, describes it). But the client on S-60 does something I’ve been wanting to do for a while now — it brings presence to your existing address book. For those contacts who are also Jaiku buddies, you can see their latest jaiku line underneath their name and then drill down and find out additional presence info (like if they are in a meeting or whatever). Very very cool.

  1. Normally, it is very difficult to send sms messages
    internationally. There are a number of free sms senders on the
    market but they usually only service one country. There are
    paid sms services, which allow you to sms other countries, but most people don’t use them. Therefore, I find Jaiku an interesting
    approach to sending messages from PDA’s and mobile phones to
    members of MM in all countries!

    greetings from Copenhagen! our next mobile monday event will be
    at the IT-university (www.itu.dk) on September 3rd, 2007. See the program at http://www.mobilemonday.dk
