Dopplr: cool online service for frequent business travelers

Tons of people I respect have been telling me to get on Dopplr for a long time. Well, yesterday at the LeWeb3 conference they finally opened the service up to the public, so I got on. I also got a demo and an interview with the CEO and CTO and I can definitely see that this will be a favorite service of mine. Jimmy Wales, Wikipedia founder, says that Dopplr is his favorite non-Wiki Web site, according to the Dopplr blog, which also has tons of other details on the service. More next week when I get my interviews up and have some time to play more with the service.

UPDATE: Web Worker Daily has a good article on other things for travelers.

  1. I’ve been on Dopplr for a while and it’s been useful, especially to keep track of people who show up at some of the same conferences.

    That said, I am torn between Dopplr and TripIt. For now I am using both. I really like TripIt’s functionality, but have more connections on Dopplr.

    NOTHING

  5. I know it was closed beta until this week, but there were plenty of people who would have given you one of their invites Robert. I’m sure if you’d asked on Twitter, you’d have had dozens of invites in seconds.

    Ah well. Glad to see you finally trying it. It’s great.

  7. Robert, I’ve just been told about a new service, YOWTrip, that at first sight seems to be much better than Dopplr. I’ve tried it and I can say that it’s really made for worldwide travelers. Dopplr is more business oriented, while YOWTrip is more focused on getting people together during a trip. You can basically do the same Dopplr does, but much more features are available. Take a look, the develoepr behind it will be happy about that: http://www.yowtrip.com.
    To be honest, I’ve been using Dopplr for a while and the value it actually brought to me was not that much so far.

  9. Man, I learn about the coolest things from you Robert. OK — I signed up too. I have heard about this for a long time but never saw it before. Go figure…
