Audio: The Skinny on Google's Dodgeball Aquisition

Source Title:
Phone as Platform: Lessons from ITP
Story Text:

If you've been wondering about Google's aquisition of, a hyperlocal mobile social network service, then this audio from Clay Shirky will explain a great deal...

Dennis Crowley and Alex Rainert, the founders of Dodgeball are/were students of Clay's and he gives a very good description of the service and its capabilities in this ITConversations recording. (the relevant bit is about 3/5 mins into the recording..)

You should be able to fit what he says about Dodgeball to a dozen or more Google services, both present and futuristic...

Good catch! I thought I was pretty "plugged in" but now after listening I feel so "last week"
