Intention Broadcasting(The Definition)

July 31, 2008

On Mobile 2.0 event in Barcelona last month I came in contact with Zipiko.  A fairly simple and well designed service helping people to plan “get togethers” . They call this Intention Broadcasting.

The definition used by Zipipop the mother organization is as follows:
” Intention Broadcasting is the process of spreading awareness of your intentions via information and communication technologies. Think status messaging with an emphasis on the future. An intention broadcasting system should also contain a feedback loop that can directly affect the intentions.”

Never realised that future plans are also a part of your personal context hence relevant for mobile. Your intentions as social objects. Great Find!

They also have a fantastic blog:
