The Fan Club wanted people to notice the homeless in Malmö. With $0 budget. While people were busy playing gowalla and 4square on their phones.

Facebook - you are not the customer. You are the product.

It's no secret that I really dislike Facebook. It's not their constant sudden changes to the API or the UI or their privacy policy that spurred my dislike.

Gowalla-Flashmob - I just went around the world to propose to Terri Carlson.

This lady on the left just received a digital proposal from me. Wth? Yes, I'm straight, but Terri Carlson says she will marry for health insurance, which might seem like pretty drastic measures, but as she explains it's her only option.

No, there are no proxies involved in "hacking" gowalla

Why I'm pretty sure my little fly around the world stunt will get me banned is shown in the GetSatifaction forums here, where people are upset about folk who check-in where they are not (some even dislike "drive-by check-ins)

Confessions of a Gowalla "hacker"

As you know, it all started because of that "pleaserobme" page. I Dashed around 4square to prove a point, and then did the same excersize in Gowalla (which I play), to not play favorites with either service.

Pretty much as soon as pleaserobme.com appeared it was tweeted around like wildfire (and blogged a lot) by everyone who saw it and, apparently, had never thought of this angle before.

Gowalla-beroende? Jomenvisst, sajber-stalking made easy. ;-)

Det var när vi var på väg till Amsterdam som Thomas ryckte fram sin ifån och checkade in mitt på bron mellan Sverige och Danmark som jag smittades av Gowalla-feber.
