My Name is E: Poken for grown-ups

by Volker Weber

Exchanging contact information should be really easy. As easy as exchanging a business card. That’s why we’ve come up with a fantastic little device that will allow you to exchange contact information through a single touch-based gesture. Connector will be released at major conferences all around the globe.

But you don’t need a Connector to use E. E works on any phone with an internet connection. That way, you can exchange cards between iPhones, Blackberries, Android phones, Windows Mobile phones, Nokias, Motorolas, Palm phones, and so on. And while we have native applications, you don’t have to download any software to use E.

definitely more of a biz attitude than poken - from the look of the device to the overall attitude of the website. but the fact I can't just buy one irks me.

Looks very interesting. Let's see how long it will take to reach the tipping point (critical mass) so that this service actually is getting to be useful.

I use this extensively at social media conferences/meetings and saves a ton of time, paper and dynamic updating ability as I add new content.

Bull**** bingo! Cell phones have Bluetooth for years now, why reinvent the wheel?

Ralf Stellmacher, 2009-05-25

Because the Bluetooth wheel is not round.

Mark Calleran let slip about these to us a few weeks ago.

Very nice, but at the unit price they're charging - they won't be appearing at any UK Lotus based conferences you may be going to. At least not in the short term. It's a shame, because that's how they will catch on. Once a number of people have them, it suddenly makes much more sense.

What are they charging?

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
