We launched public profiles on Dopplr yesterday – and the thing that seems to get people talking is their personal velocity, rendered as an animal.
I’m not sure when this occured to me, perhaps it’s my fascination with daemons and familiars – but it seems to strike a chord.
The hardest part of implementing this was finding enough animals at lower speeds – the internet has lots of data on fast, exciting beasties, but not so much on the slowpokes.
We’d love to get more members for our menagerie…
If you’re a zoologist or know one please get in touch!
